The fact that STEM jobs have fared so well even through the recession is telling. If anything, demand will only intensify as the economy picks up. (The lack of STEM education is at the heart of the STEM worker shortage.

There is ongoing debate about whether there is or there is not a STEM crisis regarding the need for more STEM workers and more students educated in STEM. In this article, the author Ms. Rosen argues that there is a shortage of STEM workers and that we need more students and workers to be educated in STEM. Because there are so many sources arguing whether there is or there is not a STEM crisis, I want to continue researching which one is true. However, I believe that if students want to be educated in STEM then no one should hold them back. I believe the STEM program is beneficial and more students should have the opportunity to explore it, whether they end up pursuing it or not. Because we are coming more technological advanced as a society and in the world, I think offering students technology courses that help them learn and interact with techology is important. Also, I never was offered engineering courses and I wish I was exposed to those types of courses to see if I was interested in engineering and perhaps it would have benefitted me when I graduated high school and came to college. I think the STEM program should be offered to as many students as possible so every student can have to opportunity to experience and learn from it.
