Over the next five years, the United States is expected to add as many as 1.3 million new STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) jobs. A 2012 report by The President's Council of Advisors of Science and Technology stated that, "Economic projections point to a need for approximately one million more STEM professionals than the U.S. will produce at the current rate over the next decade."
All of our students won't pursue STEM-related careers, but they will all benefit from the skills they learn through STEM - critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, creativity, and perseverance. These are 21st century skills that will help all students achieve success in their future endeavors, whether STEM-related or not.
The STEM homepage will be a continuously growing site. It includes information for students and parents regarding our science, technology, engineering, and mathematics programs within the district. Please explore the links on the left side of this page that interest you and check-back frequently for updates.
Thank you to all of the Skaneateles students, teachers, and community members whose hard work and engagement have helped make Skaneateles a Gold Medal district with a reputation for excellent STEM programs!
