All over the world employers, teachers, and students are beginning to really understand the importance of STEM skills

Why?

Because the world continues to become more and more technologically driven.

More people are using computers, more processes are being mechanised, and more products are being based on intelligent, intuitive systems.

Because of this, the world needs more and more technologists and engineers. And these people need to have good STEM skills.

It's hard to think of anything in our day-to-day lives that doesn't now make use of technology and technological products

Here are just a few examples:

  • Your TV Box and all of the services coming into your home via broadband
  • Your supermarket receipt, and vouchers that know what you usually buy
  • Products designed just for you – personalised trainers, for example
