San Diego Science Alliance Commits Support to National STEM Conference
San Diego, CA— San Diego Science Alliance is proud to announce its relationship with U.S. News & World Report to promote the fourth annual U.S. News STEM Solutions in San Diego, June 29 – July 1, 2015. This powerful collaboration marries the strengths of both organizations to address a very real and immediate challenge facing the U.S. today: the shortage of American workers to fill the nearly 3 million jobs requiring skills in science, technology, engineering and math.
Each year, the highly regarded national U.S. News STEM Solutions conference unites 1,500 of the brightest minds in industry, education and government—business leaders, scientists, technology experts, nonprofit organizers, policymakers and educators—to work together toward establishing a self-sustaining STEM workforce for the future. This year, the content is particularly focused on illuminating a path towards new, self-sustaining ways to teach, inspire and hire a workforce that includes women, minorities, disadvantaged youth, veterans and all of tomorrow’s aspiring STEM professionals.
San Diego Science Alliance is ideally positioned to bring attention to the STEM pipeline challenge and help address the shortage of skilled workers to fill U.S. STEM jobs. SDSA serves all of San Diego County with high-quality STEM programming, county-wide events and resources and services that support the education-industry workforce pipeline. Through the Better Education for Women in Science and Engineering (BEWISE) program and the Youth Space Institute, SDSA engages women and girls with opportunities in STEM learning in industry, university and community settings.
As a key member of the STEM community in California/San Diego, San Diego Science Alliance – along with their San Diego STEM Collaboratory – is a well-recognized local leader on the topic of STEM and workforce development. SDSA sponsors the San Diego County High Tech Fair where 3,300 local middle and high school students explore science fields and practical applications of STEM.
U.S. News & World Report is enthusiastically welcoming the group’s involvement. “We are so proud that San Diego Science Alliance is committing its support, voice and resources towards addressing one of the most pressing issues facing America’s economic future. We respect and admire SDSA’s work and look forward to their contributions to the Conference in San Diego,” said Brian Kelly, Chief Content Officer at U.S. News & World Report.
