STEM@Work catapults students' prospects
May 15, 2017
Learning doesn’t happen in a vacuum, and without an integration between the public schools and the business community (i.e., potential employers), the critical thinking gap that exists in today’s workforce would become the rule, rather than the exception. We owe more to the younger generation, and when their skills are developed in anticipation of future employment opportunities, everybody wins. That’s why we love that the highlight of the recent STEM@Work wrap-up event was a catapult competition. By working together to solve problems, we can achieve greater, more meaningful results that shape the future farther than we can see.
EnSite is proud to have been an early supporter of the STEM@Work program. Without a team effort, STEM is just a bunch of letters. Read more about the STEM-focused initiatives by Lee County Public Schools in partnership with the business community in this excellent article by the News-Press.
