        STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. You should be interested in STEM because these subjects affect our lives every day. Do you ever wonder how your cell phone works, how your doctor can take pictures of your internal organs, how countries can send people into space, or how bridges are constructed? STEM is the answer!

        Also, many of the best-paying, lowest-unemployment jobs in our country are based in STEM fields. STEM professionals such as engineers and scientists work to solve real-world problems like coming up with cures for cancer and inventing new forms of energy to power our buildings. STEM professionals are motivated by a spirit of innovation and discovery, they like to help people, and often work in teams.

        There are opportunities for entering STEM careers at all educational levels—some don’t even require a college degree! But you SHOULD take four years of high school math and three years of high school science, so that you can be ready for any field of study or employment.

        Here are the STEM Fields of Study (also known as “majors”):
