If you are an educator you know how important the teaching of STEM subjects — Science, Technology, Engineering and Math — has become in recent years.
It is no secret that women are largely underrepresented in STEM/STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) careers. The U.S. Census Bureau reports that women make up only 26 percent of the STEM workforce — and yet they make up 57 percent of the overall U.S.
As an educator you know that learning is infinite. That’s why so many teachers choose to continue their education through master’s degree programs, certificates or professional development.
