A successful STEMM education provides students with science, technology, engineering, math, and medicine experiences in sequences that build upon each other and can be used with real-world applications. STEMM education creates critical thinkers, increases science literacy, and enables the next generation of innovators. Innovation leads to new products and processes that sustain our economy.

A STEMM-literate student is not only an innovator and critical thinker, but is able to make meaningful connections between school, community, work and global issues. A STEMM-literate high school graduate can enroll in a college-level course of study in science, technology, engineering, math, and medicine without the need for remediation. STEMM skills are increasingly necessary to engage in a knowledge-based economy. There is solid evidence to suggest that the fastest-growing and highest-wage jobs in future years will be in STEMM fields and all employees will need to utilize STEMM skills for problem solving in a wide range of industries.
