The Department of the Interior (DOI) is concerned about the pipeline of future employees who are scientifically literate. In response, the department has released a strategic plan for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education to strengthen career pathways to fields of study that support Interior’s mission.
“Intentional and strategic alignment of existing resources, leveraging of current programs, and expansion of partnerships will allow DOI to strengthen those education and career pathways that will attract and prepare the future workforce and contribute to the development of a scientifically literate public with whom DOI must engage daily to address complex issues in their communities,” states the report.
