As the education chair for ASA, Lt. Governor Reynolds looks to collaborate with participants in both the public and private sectors to increase awareness and visibility of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) subjects in grades K-12. That includes seeking to increase student interest and achievement in STEM subjects so that students will have greater opportunities to pursue a STEM and Aerospace career. And to do this, actions steps include identifying high-quality programs that are already in place and working, and then to look for ways to scale them across the nation.
As committee chair, the Lt. Governor’s goal is to continue to drive innovation and economic development, while aligning with a highly-skilled workforce. And she believes that that skilled workforce must be trained in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math, (STEM) if we want our states to be competitive in today’s global economy.
