STEM Education Center
The National Governor's Association recently noted:
"America's economic growth in the 21st century will be driven by our nation's ability to generate ideas and translate them into innovative products and services. A strong consensus is emerging among scientific, business, and education leaders that America's ability to innovate and compete in the global marketplace is directly tied to the ability of our public schools to adequately prepare all of our children in STEM."
The STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Education Center at Saint Xavier University's Orland Park campus is funded through a congressionally-directed grant. This initiative is aimed at strengthening the quality of STEM education in public and private schools in the south suburbs of the Chicago metropolitan area.
