Celebrating STEM Day: Why STEM Education Is So Important

We are celebrating STEM Day this week on November 8th. For those that aren’t familiar with this acronym, STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. STEM Day is typically used as an opportunity to preach the importance of these studies in our school systems. The purpose of this blog is to show how the value of STEM goes beyond general education.    

Why Should I Care About STEM?   

Oh, we’ve got reasons! The study of STEM is important because the world relies on it to survive. STEM plays a part in everything from your home to our economy, our medical care, lifestyles and more. Everything listed above receives contributions from science, technology, engineering, and math.   

With so much left to discover, the possibilities are endless for those with an educational background in STEM. Beyond the obvious global benefits, educators have stressed that introducing STEM at a young age can greatly increase creativity, problem-solving and a curiosity for learning.  

Exciting Careers in STEM   

There are so many careers to choose from within the STEM educational realm. Think of working for companies like Netflix, Spotify, NASA, Legoland, and Disney! These major companies all require STEM expertise to keep things running smoothly. Some of the most exciting inventions to date were influenced by STEM, like computers, smartphones, 3D printing, and the list goes on.   

The birth of these digital careers created the need for the protection of our online programs and data. That’s right, we are talking about cybersecurity. As a tech company that specializes in IT services, we understand the importance of STEM from a business standpoint.
