Posted by Deanna Zaucha on August 30, 2016

Between 2014 and 2024, the number of STEM jobs will grow 17%, as compared with 12% for non-STEM jobs. But only 36% of all high school grads are ready to take a college-level science course. And while 74% of girls express interest in STEM courses, only 0.4% of high school girls select computer science when choosing a college major.

So how can educators give students what they want from math and science courses to support the growing demand for interest in STEM?

Cengage created an infographic to show how schools can adopt the use of technology to appeal to their students in the classroom.
