Webinar Series: Making STEM Relevant in Your Classroom (March 26)
One of the top jobs in America today is an app developer; something that you couldn’t even get a degree in five years ago. And, the US Department of Commerce estimates that over 50 percent of the jobs currently available will be automated in the next ten years. Therefore, we need to prepare our students!
