Amid the emergence of new technologies and energy transition, the U.S.’s ambitions for meeting the demands of the future have never been higher. Yet massive inequities persist for students and workers alike in accessing the learning opportunities and pathways that would allow them to access STEM training and careers.

FAS works to identify root causes to persistent K-12 STEM education gaps that prevent students from pursuing STEM disciplines and careers, and to understand and spotlight what research says about effective STEM programs and models. We advance policy solutions that will allow all learners and workers to have pathways into the STEM workforce and wage-sustaining STEM jobs that our nation needs for future prosperity and security.
