Why is STEM So Important

Yet today, few American students pursue expertise in STEM fields—and we have an inadequate pipeline of teachers skilled in those subjects. That’s why a priority set to increase the number of students and teachers who are proficient in these vital fields.

The Need

In order for our nation and our world to face the most pressing challenges, for both today and tomorrow, we need our young people to be better prepared, equipped and exposed to deeper thinking leading towards increase chances of new innovators, educators, researchers and world leaders.  Accessing quality Science, Technology, Education & Math  (STEM) learning is a core opportunity that too few students understand for future careers aspirations.

mYE is here…NOW…to augment STEM exposure for OUR YOUNG PEOPLE today – WORLD LEADERS tomorrow!

Based on US Department of Education statistics:

  • Only 81% of Asian-American high school students and 71% of white high school students attend high schools where the full range of math and science courses are offered (Algebra I, geometry, Algebra II, calculus, biology, chemistry, and physics).
  • The access to these courses for American Indian, Native-Alaskan, black, and Hispanic high school students are significantly worse.
  • Only 16% of American high school seniors are proficient in math and interested in a STEM career; of these, roughly 50% chooses a career in this related field.

Children’s race, zip code, or socioeconomic status should never determine their STEM fluency. We must give all children the opportunity to be college-ready and to thrive in a modern STEM economy.

The United States is falling behind internationally, ranking 29th in math and 22nd in science among industrialized nations. What’s more, a recent survey revealed that only 29 percent of Americans rated this country’s K-12 education in STEM subjects as above average or the best in the world. In our competitive global economy, this situation is unacceptable.

 

mYe has establish a platform for both local and GLOBAL young people to connect and embrace STEM.

How Can mYe Foundation Help

mYe encourages young people to embrace STEM as a “second language” by providing early exposure so that basic technological literacy will become second nature.

mYe encourage diversity in various technology-related fields which would ensure a greater range of inspiring interest across students of all ethnicities, genders, and socioeconomic backgrounds in Michigan to have the opportunity to learn these skills.

mYe Foundation works closely with K-12 teachers, college professors and industrial professionals to develop a series of fun, interactive, project based hands-on courses. These courses are designed based on the Kid’s age and interests, where students can apply various STEM concepts and knowledge to execute small project during each class session.
