Did you know that America consistently ranks poorly against other countries in STEM subjects? We place 25th in math and 17th in science out of 31 countries ranked by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.
Only about 18 percent of high school seniors perform at or above proficiency in science subjects, according to the National Math and Science Initiative.
These alarming numbers are forcing America to go back to the chalkboard and evaluate where we stand in an evolving STEM world.
If your student attends public school in California, chances are they aren’t getting the STEM education required to keep up in a rapidly tech-focused world. Does your child learn programming, computer science, engineering, or software development in their classroom?
According to USNews.com, the third best job in the United States in 2015 was Software Developer.
Other jobs on the Top 25 list included Computer Systems Analyst, Web Developer, Mechanical Engineer, and IT Manager. More than 75% of jobs were in STEM industries!
Your child can be successful in anything they aspire to be, regardless of how early they started. Hard work will get you places! But wouldn’t it be better to get your student learning programming, engineering, and technology-based subjects from a young age?
These skills are best honed over time. Repetition and experience are the keys to successful learning.
At BrainStorm STEM Education, we’re preparing kids for the world of tomorrow, today. Our students are programming robots, developing their own apps, and creating remarkable projects in 3D modeling and 3D printing.
You’d be astounded at what your child can accomplish on their own once they’ve learned the basics.
Our spring classes begin on February 22nd and continue for six weeks. Give us a try! If you aren’t completely satisfied with your child’s education here, we’ll refund the cost or book your child on a different course. We’re committed to your child’s education and opportunities.
