SiteofWeek091510 Educators who want to help students better prepare for the technology careers of the future now have a new resource in the Math & Science Career section of Texas Instruments¹ Education Technology Student Zone. As the need for technical work continues to grow, the ability to use math and science to solve problems, make discoveries, and develop new products is critical, TI says. Rewarding STEM careers can begin from two-year and four-year degrees‹and the more science and math courses that students take in high school, the broader their college degree options and career choices will be.

TI and the Sloan Career Cornerstone Center have teamed up to offer resources that can help students explore possible STEM careers and planning strategies. Site visitors can compare different STEM degrees; learn the courses that help keep STEM career options open; read the profiles of professionals in STEM fields and their career paths; and find links to national STEM programs and projects. http://education.ti.com/studentzone/StudentZoneUS/careers/index.html
