Students who participate in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education have the opportunity to develop knowledge and skills to prepare for a workforce where success results not just from what one knows, but what one is able to do with that awareness. This continuing education course, developed using information from the U.S. Department of Education, summarizes experts’ recommendations for the development of STEM education that will promote lifelong learning among all youth and in all communities. In addition, the six interconnected components of the aspirational vision known as STEM 2026, and the challenges and opportunities for innovation related to converting these components into widespread practice are presented.
