STEM importance in Rochester

ROCHESTER, Minn. – Science, technology, engineering, and math or STEM is becoming a hot topic across this country. More and more jobs are being geared toward STEM and that’s the case in Rochester as well.

In fact, leaders from the business world as well as educators come together four times a year to discuss STEM in Rochester. They hope more students are getting involved with the topic, because with many jobs coming to Rochester, it could be extra important. “Rochester is expected to grow 35,000 to 40,000 jobs in the next decade and we know a big chunk of those are going to be in STEM,” Rochester Area Chamber of Commerce Education Director, Jessi Strinmoen said.

The meeting held four times a year is called STEM Stewards and the next one will be held in November.
