Do You See Your High School Students in Future STEM Careers?

By: Kris Beisel

Opportunities abound for students in science, technology, engineering and math fields (STEM). STEM education is preparing young people to step into today’s in-demand careers. And the opportunities will continue to grow in the future!

That is why Destination Imagination and the Student Research Foundation are collaborating on research about high school students’ perceptions of STEM and its career opportunities. We aim to stimulate a dialogue on career pathways among parents, teachers and students, along with the help of our other partners (American Association of Physics Teachers,  National Alliance for Partnerships in Equity, Hispanic Heritage Foundation).

By including your students as part of this important research project, you can help them:

  • further consider their strengths, interests, and career options;
  • receive information from colleges, universities, career and technical schools, and other post-secondary institutions looking for students with their specific interests, talents, skill sets, and career goals; and,
  • increase their access to postsecondary scholarship opportunities.

If you are a high school teacher, please watch for a package in the postal mail from the National College and Career Pathways Study (STEM Research Consortium). To make sure you are on our list, just fill out this simple online form or email [email protected].

Thank you in advance for participating!
