Job Growth and Innovation Utilizing STEM Education

STEM—or science, technology, engineering and mathematics—occupations play a vital role in America’s global competitiveness. These jobs, however, are not limited to just scientists, engineers and doctorate-level mathematicians. More than half of the projected jobs in STEM fields are in computing occupations, yet computer science education is frequently disregarded in K-12 educational systems. According to Computing in the Core, only 13 states and the District of Columbia allow rigorous and engaging computer science courses to satisfy a math or science requirement for high school graduation.

CSG is partnering with Code.org and other national organizations to get 10 million students of all ages to try computer science for one hour. This webinar explored ways legislators can promote the Hour of Code campaign to coincide with national Computer Science Education Week, Dec. 9-15, 2013.
