New tool helps explore path to more STEM graduates


SiteofWeek101310State and local policy makers and philanthropists have a new resource to help them increase the number of graduates in the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields: An online tool developed for this purpose by the Business-Higher Education Forum with help from Ohio State University debuted Sept. 27. It allows people to see what combinations of policies might create the most interest in STEM degrees and careers, such as retaining more teachers or starting an elementary-school science club. More than 200 research variables are included in the free online tool, which is based on a computer model developed by Raytheon Co. To ensure the continued competitiveness of the United States in the new global economy, a national push is on to double the number of U.S. graduates in the STEM fields by 2015. http://www.STEMnetwork.org/
