Getting students, particularly women and girls, interested in pursuing STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) learning and careers is a high priority in education that aims to fill gaps in today's workforce.
Amanda Marcum, an Ohio high school student, speaks with Amee Godwin, of ISKME and CompletionMatters.org about her interests in STEM learning while visiting the Fab Lab on campus at Lorain Community College, OH.
Using a Fab Lab, originally developed at MIT, students apply principles of design and engineering, creativity and hands-on problem-solving, that students can leverage across subjects and in their careers.
CompletionMatters.org (www.completionmatters.org), a project of ISKME, is a comprehensive, publicly accessible commons that provides information, tools, and other resources on how to best enable students, educators and policymakers to increase the number of students who earn postsecondary certificates and degrees.
