ITI Highlights High-Tech’s Investments in Students and Workers on New Website

Earlier this year, ITI unveiled its last iteration of Moving Education Forward:  Strengthening STEM in Today’s Classrooms -- an excellent resource that spotlights many of our member companies and the investments they’ve made in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) programs that prepare our nation’s students and workers for today’s dynamic economy.  Today, ITI moved this book and its content into the virtual world, and launched its STEM website, Strengthening STEM to Secure our Future.  Just like its book, ITI’s site will be a one-stop shop where visitors can read, watch, and learn what the high-tech industry is doing to shrink the skills gap. 

Today’s dynamic, innovation-driven economy demands bright and creative minds with versatile STEM skills.  Literally tens of thousands of good-paying U.S. jobs that require STEM skills go unfilled in today’s marketplace.  In fact, vacant STEM jobs outnumber qualified applicants by nearly 2 to 1.  Possessing these critical skills is nearly a one-way ticket to success.  And that’s why it’s so heartening to see many of ITI’s member companies make the necessary investments to improve the quantity and quality of student STEM participation, and shrink the skills gap.  Whether it’s funding scholarships, training teachers, crafting curriculum, mentoring students, or providing cutting edge hardware and software, the high tech industry's investments are paving the way for America’s classrooms to foster creativity and innovation. 

On behalf of ITI and its members, I invite you to visit the site and learn more about what the high-tech industry is doing to advance STEM education in your area, and build the high-quality U.S. workforce needed to innovate, compete, and succeed for generations to come.

    Often called Red Rock Country Sedona is a four senasos playground for everyone whether you're into history and archaeology; arts and culture ; shopping ; outdoor sports ; or the spiritual and metaphysical , imagine doing all this in a backdrop of some of the most spectacular scenery in the world. This picturesque city is surrounded by red-rock monoliths named Coffeepot, Cathedral and Thunder Mountain. At the north end of the city is the stunning Oak Creek Canyon, a breathtaking chasm that is wildly wonderful. Natural endowments aside, you'll also find world-class hotels, resorts, bed and breakfasts and a very good variety of dining to keep you satisfied. Escape the chaos of life, kick back and relax in Sedona. [url=]twmpclbqym[/url] [link=]thfentdam[/link]

    More muddled thniikng from the Conservatives.This kind of goes against recommendations of the Jenkins commission. It recommended the government BUY more products from Canada's high tech companies. (Similar to the way the US government has historically bought large amounts of product from US high-tech companies (aerospace, science, defence, energy, computing, health-care)).Providing investment capital is a bit muddled in today's economic environment. Customers and revenue is what high-tech companies most need. Capital's cheap, but banks won't lend to you without customers. Having steady sources of federal revenue allows them to more easily justify investments in RD that may pay off with many private-sector customers. But it's the truth that most RD is highly risky, won't end up paying off, and harder and harder for even the largest companies to justify.To be fair, the government may have got the message when it comes to MDA, and its purchase of a new radarsat satellite program. But it didn't get the message with respect to AECL, and the maple reactor or ACR, for instance. [url=]jzjrpdulp[/url] [link=]qkvcurebgxn[/link]

    the acquisition ROE has to be at least 15%, much hhegir than 8.64% -13.56%... Although HSBC gave them the go ahead for the acquisition and I believe HSBC is very cautious about these things, esp after the Household incidence, Ping An is not getting much of a discount on fortis. Any comments?RC

    some important thgnis through comedy. Plus of course it's totally funny. ;-)Paz, ITA, the TC episode is hilarious. Chef/Isaac Hayes is a brainwashed cretin, they're better off without him. The character was really cool on the show, but obviously they couldn't work with someone like that.
