The Steer Into STEM Program

The need for high-quality learning opportunities is prevalent everywhere. Technology and media companies consistently need an educated workforce with strong cognitive capacities and digital skills. They need contributors who have both technical skills and knowledge of science, technology, mathematics, engineering, and design.

The program “Steer Into STEM was established.
