The importance of STEM
today and tomorrow
Our world depends more and more on STEM skills and capabilities.There were 2.4 Million
STEM jobs unfilled in 2018 in the US alone, and similar shortages are seen in Europe. The shortage
is expected to increase significantly as technology advances. Rapid advances in artificial intelligence (AI),
robotics and other emerging technologies are happening in ever shorter cycles and are changing the
nature of the jobs that need to be done and the skills needed to do them.
Job market shortage
2.4 Million STEM jobs unfilled in 2018
in the US only, and the shortage is expected to
increase significantly as technology advances.
133 milion new roles
The World Economic Forum predicts that at least
133 million new roles may emerge globally
by 2022, as a result of the new division of labour
between humans, machines and algorithms.
Gender gap in
74% of young girls are interested in STEM, but
by age 11 70% lose interest due to lack of
confidence in math.
Brain difference in learning
between boys and girls
Even when STEM abilities are equal between girls
and boys, research by world-renowned expert on
gender-based learning Dr. Abigail Norfleet James,
shows the perceived difference in abilities starts as
young as 5 years old.
