We are proud to announce the publication of the digital 2017 Guide to STEM Colleges, the result of an exciting new collaboration between TeenLife Media and the National Consortium of Secondary STEM Schools (NCSSS).
At TeenLife, we connect students, parents and educators with the best educational experiences in and out of the classroom, including summer, arts, gap-year, and STEM programs. We are particularly passionate about encouraging students to explore all that science, technology, engineering and math hold for the future.
NCSSS is an association of the top STEM high schools in the country. It not only supports students, parents and educators, but helps to shape education opportunities and policy in science, technology, engineering and math.
In our guide, you can meet students who are already leaders in their fields, including Indrani Das, the winner of this year’s $250,000 prize in the Regeneron Science Talent Search. You can see what STEM high schools are doing with technology like virtual reality and drones. And you can search for a STEM college or summer program in our 400 listings.
I studied engineering only because my father encouraged me to do so - it was not a major my high school counselor suggested. But today, schools and employers agree on the importance of encouraging all students to explore STEM ideas and jobs - particularly women and underserved students. These are careers that promise satisfaction and employment for years to come.
