A growing digital economy is bolstering demand for occupations in science, technology, engineering, and math. This growth will add more than half a million new computer jobs over the next eight years. However, a shortage of STEM professionals means many of these positions may remain empty.
That’s why education has quickly become a front-and-center issue for talent-hungry corporations. To encourage more interest in STEM fields, major companies are supporting learning programs by offering grants, resources, and new opportunities to the next generation of innovators.

The world may move to only using renewable energy in the coming years. To make this transition, we must have a generation of problem solvers to help us reach a greener future.
Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education has been growing in popularity in recent years. Some see this as a trending academic discipline that may pass, while others emphasize the role it will play in renewable energy. Educators and teachers can encourage students to pursue degrees in STEM and enter the renewables market.
In the first five months of 2020, over 25% of electricity in the country was powered by renewable sources. Students will significantly benefit from an early introduction to STEM, and the hope is that they will be able to land a job in their respective fields.
One common goal between many countries is to reach net-zero emissions before the next decade. Replacing traditional energy sources with new technologies will aid in achieving that goal as well as create well-paying jobs for individuals. We need individuals with a STEM background to help us reach this critical goal.
Let’s explore some possible careers that students with STEM backgrounds could potentially enter.
