Orlando Economy – Educational STEM Crisis

by

This is something I heard about while I was at the Learning Solutions conference a few weeks ago. This is not just a crisis in the Central Florida market, but across the United States.

STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. These are areas of expertise considered to be critical to our community and our country’s future.

In Orlando, this is an important thing, since we have a large employment sector that deals in engineering, defense, and the training of these career professionals.

Here is a link to the Orlando Science Center and several articles that discuss this topic:

These are two videos of Dr. Ioannis N. Miaoulis, President and Director of the Museum of Science, Boston speaking in at the Orlando Science Center about this topic.

I posted this in a different blog article, but you can also learn more about this topic at:
