Women helping Capital Region students prepare for STEM workforce

August 10, 2018 06:59 PM

STEM jobs are growing faster than any other job sector in the United States. In fact, the U.S. Bureau of Labor estimates jobs in that field will increase more than 17-percent by 2024.

The question is will we have a workforce prepared to take those jobs? A group of local women is trying to make sure area students are trained to get in on those STEM jobs.

It's part of a summer program called, "Tinker & Fiddle" – introducing kids to technology -- especially minorities.

The program starts with kids ages 11-15. Projects have a problem solving and real-world aspect.

The women are all doing their part to help the students get excited about STEM and hopefully one day think of careers in science.
