  1. What a great idea! Kids who are interested in STEM have “idols” of sorts to look up to and this is a great way to try and crush the stigma of STEM careers being “nerd jobs.” But in all honesty, these careers are vital to our future as a nation. We need to put everything we can into encouraging our youth to participate in STEM. I read a great article about the future of stem that really sheds a lot of light on the discussion going on right now. I would recommend you give it a read. http://www.ourblook.com/STEM/The-Future-of-STEM.html

  2. Thanks for the article, Ally — lots of good suggestions on approaches to teaching and encouraging STEM, as well as mention of successful programs!
