ADDRESSING AN INDUSTRY SHORTAGE

ADDRESSING AN INDUSTRY SHORTAGE

Careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) grew 18.7% between 2010-2020, compared to 14.3% for all other occupations, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. This rapid growth has created a STEM worker shortage in the U.S. To address this deficiency,  the Solano  County Office of Education (SCOE) is joining widespread efforts to boost interest in STEM among students.
