Why STEAM Education at NHCSD?
Simply put, many education and economic experts believe that the future of employment and economic vitality as a nation resides in STEM (or as we prefer, STEAM) related careers.
Our present challenge is to discover new educational pathways to help students prepare for the future.
“For the United States to maintain its preeminent position in the world it will be essential that the Nation continues to lead in STEM, but evidence indicates that current educational pathways are not leading to a sufficiently large and well-trained STEM workforce to achieve this goal.”
