Welcome to our new monthly feature on EDNC called the NC STEM ScoreCard, written in partnership with the NC Science, Mathematics, and Technology Education Center (SMT) and the Burroughs Wellcome Fund.

North Carolina is at a critical crossroads in its economic and educational development. The proud traditional businesses and occupations that fueled our economy in the past, especially those requiring minimal education and skills, are playing a diminishing role in our state. A new more competitive economy has emerged, one that requires higher levels of knowledge and skills, many based in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics and achieved through more engaging teaching and learning strategies.

Are we ready?
