Institute joins NGA Center on Best Practices “State Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Summit” December 7-9, 2011, in Durham, North Carolina.

The NGA Center STEM Summit provides an opportunity to develop a state strategy to respond to the state’s need to increase student and worker STEM (Science, Technology, Engineer and Math) skills. Additionally, the summit will highlight research and state examples of effective STEM skill development connected to economic development.

It is important that states focus on increasing the number of students pursuing STEM degrees and increase the level of STEM literacy for students and workers as a strategy for improving state economies. STEM jobs typically pay more and are growing at faster rates than jobs in other sectors. Moreover, nearly every sector where job growth is occurring requires at least a basic level of STEM literacy.

Jennifer McNelly will join a panel discussion focused on Industry Credential Pathways, highlighting the NAM-Endorsed Manufacturing Skills Certification System as the pathway to develop our next generation manufacturing workforce.

Ryan Reyna, NGA Center on Best Practices will moderate the session.  Mimi Maduro, Oredon Community College and Workforce Department and Jason Tyszko, Illinois Department of Commerce will also be on the panel.
