What is the STEM ScoreCard for North Carolina?
North Carolina stands at a crossroads in its economic and educational development. The proud, traditional businesses that fueled our economy in the past, especially those requiring minimal skills and education, are playing a diminishing role in our state. A new fast-paced economy is emerging that requires higher levels of knowledge and skills based in science, mathematics, engineering and technology achieved through strategies that engage the mind. Are we ready?
The NC STEM ScoreCard has been developed to serve as a tool to help the public and decision makers chart a direction for the state’s STEM-related economic future. The ScoreCard is intended to give us a comprehensive assessment of where we stand across a number of ‘domains’ that are important in setting the directions for change in North Carolina.
