President Obama announces an expansion of the Educate to Innovate campaign to improve the participation and performance of America's students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
-September 16, 2010-
In today’s world economy, a growing number of jobs require Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) skills. There is a great need for America to produce a world-class STEM workforce to address the challenges of the 21st century.
However, American students currently show a below-average aptitude in Math and Science subjects relative to students in other countries, falling far behind many leading countries in the world. To face this issue, the Obama Administration has launched a campaign called “Educate to Innovate” to improve the participation and performance of America’s students in STEM. Success and leadership in these fields will require improving STEM literacy for students of all races and genders, expanding the pipeline for a strong and innovative STEM workforce.
Robot Edutainment was developed to meet this growing need to work with young people across America to excel in STEM. Our mission, along with America’s nationwide effort, is to increase STEM literacy using robotics so that all students, even at an early age, can learn deeply and think critically in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.
