The Carnegie Museum recently was home to a Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Summit for educators and youth program directors to share information about the wide variety of STEM programs currently available to youth in grades PreK-12 in our community. Representatives from organizations like 4-H, Boy Scouts, Boys & Girls Club, as well as teachers from the North Montgomery, Southmont, and Crawfordsville school corporations attended the event to share experiences and details about their specific programs taking place both during and after the school day. The goal of this first Summit was two-fold: To develop a directory of the various programs which are available today and to identify gaps and/or opportunities for additional programming.
With the increase in technology required to do business today—be it manufacturing a product or selling a service—careers focused in STEM are in high demand. According to a report by Pricewaterhouse Coopers and The Manufacturing Institute, they surveyed 120 US manufacturers with a special emphasis on how advanced manufacturing technologies are impacting the workforce dynamics. They found that as manufacturers increase their application of these technologies (e.g., 3D printing, robotics, Internet of Things, app developers, computer coders) to meet the ever-growing pressure to produce faster, their needs for more qualified talent become increasingly important. Survey recipients state the most common strategy to upskill employees in advanced manufacturing to accommodate the skills of these jobs is to train in-house, followed by recruiting local STEM students and offering outside vocational training.
Question of the Week:

Spring officially hits the calendar Tuesday. But says it's still going to be chilly. Are you ready for warmer temps?
