During the next decade, the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology estimates that U.S. industries will need one million more STEM graduates than the system is expected to produce. Despite the need, the U.S. Department of Education estimates that just 1 in 6 high school seniors are proficient in math and interested in pursuing STEM higher education or careers.
Given this challenge, STEM internship programs both at the college and high school level are becoming more important than ever to contribute to development of STEM career paths for students and to support the Massachusetts economy.
