According to the U. S. Department of Commerce, STEM occupations are growing at a rate of 17% per year. Science, technology, engineering and mathematics workers play a key role in helping to grow the economy and compete on the world stage.
STEM education creates critical thinkers, increases science literacy, and enables the next generation of innovators. Furthermore, STEM education helps to bridge the ethnic and gender gaps sometimes found in math and science fields.
Recently, Boys & Girls Clubs of America partnered with Comcast NBC Universal to introduce a brand new social platform called My.Future for kids and teens.
In the past, children have enjoyed spending time at their local Boys & Girls Club for the fun, fellowship and care they received from the staff. But today children want to connect and interact with their friends online. This is why BGCA has developed My.Future – a mobile app for youth to connect with their friends online and learn new skills in fun and safe environment.
