Get Involved

“I was invited to my first CF STEM General Council meeting over three years ago. It didn’t take long to see how the Council stands in the huge gap between the low number of STEM graduates the U.S. (including Central Florida) is producing, and the increasingly high number of STEM-related jobs in American industry and in our military.   

That gap is hurting our community, our state, and our country because it jeopardizes our economy at all levels, our ability to compete globally, and our national security.  It also jeopardizes the future of my small business that relies on STEM graduates to grow and prosper.  The Council is a terrific group that has a clear mission, is well organized, and is making a big difference.  Being involved in the Council is an opportunity for me to give back to my community and country, pay forward to others through education,  and invest in the future of my company.”

[stem]  noun   1. Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics, is the key to our future careers. STEM encompasses almost everything in our daily lives. How we eat, communicate; solve problems, where we live, virtually all of the things we are exposed to, have been developed with a foundation of STEM knowledge. Think of the games we play after school: WII, Hlo, XBOX, how were these created? Will you be the creator of the Next Big Thing?
