STEM learning is a national economic imperative. Experts say that virtually all of the 30 fastest-growing occupations in the next decade will require a background in science, technology, engineering and math. Within Utah there are currently 500 un-filled positions for people with computer science or engineering degrees. That’s why the state of Utah is investing millions of dollars in STEM education, $13.5 million alone in math soft-ware. Our school has received a grant to purchase a ST Math, a graphically-oriented, conceptual math-learning program. We will be introducing all students to computer coding this year.
