UNLOCKING TOMORROW

STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics—fields that the world needs today more than ever. STEM graduates are helping us tackle many of the world’s most complex challenges—developing smart sustainable technologies, and finding new ways to feed our growing global population.

As demand for these skill sets grow, a shortage of STEM candidates has emerged. Projections indicate that by 2018 there could be 2.4 million unfilled STEM jobs in the U.S. alone.¹ And although women make up 48% of the workforce, they hold only 23% of STEM positions.2 By helping more women launch STEM careers, we can make major strides in solving the STEM job gap.

Do you think you might have a hidden talent for STEM? Try a few of our fun STEM games, and find out!
