The STEM Partners Foundation today announced the release of the STEM
Mentor Exchange (STEM MX), a mobile app designed to connect teachers
with industry volunteers and resources, and provide students with the
learning experiences that will prepare them for the thousands of new
STEM-skilled jobs being created every day. In Utah alone, it is
predicted that STEM jobs over the next 10 years will grow 25% compared
to 20% for all other jobs.
STEM MX will make it easier for teachers to invite skilled volunteers
into their classrooms to assist in teaching a wide range of STEM-Plus
subjects, from computer coding to elementary grade fundamentals, or
provide support for: special projects, science fairs, guest lectures,
industry tours, work-based learning experiences, etc.
