6 National Need for STEM Education

7 STEM-related industries have been identified by the National Science Foundation as producing almost 50 percent of U.S. economic growth during the last 50 years. While approximately five percent of the nations workforce is employed in a STEM field, there is growing concern about losing potential U.S. workers for these high quality careers. US Dept. of Labor, Employment & Training Administration, Jan. 15, 2008

8 The number of STEM positions in the U.S. is growing at five times the rate of other occupations, according to the Council on Competitiveness. But a much slower growth rate in the number of S&E degrees earned by U.S. citizens, combined with a rapid increase in retirements in these fields, puts the U.S. at a competitive risk. Remarks made by UC-Riverside Chancellor Cordova to the American Council on Education October 6, 2005

9 If I take the revenue in January and look again in December of that year, 90% of my December revenue comes from products which were not there in January. Craig Barrett, Chairman of Intel Corporation 2008

10 In China graduated 600,000 engineers India graduated 350,000 engineers U.S. graduated 70,000 engineers © 2006, CAGT (Col. Association of Gifted and Talented, Whitepaper) In China will graduate 980,000 engineers India will graduate 520,000 engineers U.S. will graduate 3 engineers (all named Bob) © 2007, Rich (Dont quote me on that)

11 Regional and Local Needs FT. Meade Alliance/BRAC Governors P-20 Task Force on STEM Education

12 Support from top leadership Create a structure that supports collaboration 12 Martha A. Smith, Ph.D., President of AACC

13 Leadership Strong STEM Departments Significant experience with business/industry Existing P-20 partnerships

14 Tech Prep program established in early 1990s Long-standing relationship with secondary school system and universities/colleges College and County School Leadership meet regularly Over 130 articulated academic program pathways in place

15 AACC commits to an increased effort Identified a local champion Worked to achieve a balance between leadership and service Established a STEM Learning Design Team Made recommendations on how to respond to STEM opportunities

16 Connecting the silos and removing barriers Defining STEM at AACC Increasing STEM awareness across the institution One-college concept provided outstanding framework Began developing an internal structure

17 STEM became part of the college budget request to the county council STEM Center office and instructional spaces designed and constructed Three-year action plan developed with specific, measurable goals including:

18 GOAL 1: GOAL 1: Increase the number of STEM students and graduates in the pipeline through enhanced K-12 and baccalaureate articulation agreements GOAL 2: GOAL 2: Increase the number of highly qualified secondary teachers in STEM GOAL 3: GOAL 3: Prepare all segments of the STEM workforce (future workers, new workers, current workers, transitional workers and entrepreneurial workers)
