The Importance of STEM education
Access to quality science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education shouldn’t be determined by where you live. Kids all across the U.S. should be exposed to STEM. Not only is it important for the development of our youth, but it’s also important for our country’s future.
Our passion towards STEM education is the core driver of our initiatives with 4-H. As the nation’s premier youth development organization, they have a long history of leading innovative programs, and we are proud to support the work they are doing.
Together, our organizations serve the same small, local communities across America. We are passionate about STEM education, building future leaders, and the role they will play in advancing our country’s competitiveness in the global economy. That’s what makes us natural partners in inspiring our next generation of scientists.
We’re investing at the local and regional levels to introduce youth to STEM education and to get them involved in hands-on science activities. From National Youth Science Day to HughesNet STEM Days at 4-H summer camps, we’re motivating 4-H kids, families, and alumni to support 4-H and their science education programs.
