Afterschool Alert: Computing And Engineering In Afterschool

The number of jobs requiring proficiency in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields is projected to grow by 17 percent between 2008 and 2018, which is almost double the growth of non-STEM occupations. Computing and engineering represent a majority of these STEM jobs -- 79 percent will be in these occupations alone. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that there will be almost 1.5 million job openings in computing and more than 600,000 in engineering by 2020. Job opportunities in the computing field will grow by 30 percent more than the national average and the computing-related industry is among the fastest growing. Not only is there great opportunity within these fields, but they are also high-paying jobs -- both workers earn more than twice the average annual wage. View External Website

TSIN Tennessee STEM Innovation Network

Established by an Executive Order of the Governor, the Tennessee STEM Innovation Network (the TSIN or Network) is a unique public-private collaboration between the Tennessee Department of Education (TDOE) and Battelle Memorial Institute (Battelle) designed to promote and expand the teaching and learning of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education in K-12 public schools across Tennessee. Battelle was chosen as the managing partner because of its success creating the Ohio STEM Learning Network in its home state, an effort that inspired the creation of the TSIN. The TSIN is funded through Race to the Top and serves as the state’s primary vehicle for aligning and coordinating STEM education policies, practices, and partners. Tennessee is rich in STEM resources, from heavy industry and agriculture to a robust automotive sector, deep healthcare experience, logistics genius, music entrepreneurship, and internationally recognized research institutions. The goal of the TSIN is to leverage these resources – the knowledge, skill, and acumen of Tennessee’s K-12, Higher Education, Business, and Community partners – to amplify opportunities for all students.

Nissan driving local education initiatives

For more than 20 years, Nissan has helped local teachers enhance classroom lessons through a partnership with the Business Education Partnership Foundation. In the past five years, the automaker has put $275,000 into local classrooms by giving educators the chance to apply for mini-grants worth up to $500. Applications are accepted each fall and spring and are judged blindly. View External Website
