Kids@Science STEM Specialists for the Next Generation


50 Teachers in Orange County have been selected to participate in an intensive professional development

to be key leaders for STEM Education!

Why STEM Education?
Statewide, California reports that in 2020, the number of jobs requiring a college degree will outstrip the number of jobs which do not, with most of those jobs being STEM-related. Additionally, 45% of today’s current science and engineering workforce will retire within the next few years. It is also becoming increasingly apparent that science and math proficiency are the new “must-haves” for jobs outside of the usual STEM fields including positions in the hospitality, construction and services sectors. To be prepared to join the new Orange County workforce, today’s students must receive a world-class science and math education, and understand what is needed both in terms of skill development and educational attainment to compete for these new careers.  Kids@Science STEM Specialists will develop the tools to help educators meet these needs.
