100Kin10 unites the nation's top academic institutions, nonprofits, foundations, companies, and government agencies to train and retain 100,000 excellent STEM teachers to educate the next generation of innovators and problem solvers.
Today's students are the building blocks of tomorrow's workforce and civil society. Ten of the top 14 fastest-growing industries require significant know-how in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Yet Americans continue to under-perform in those fields, and women and people of color are significantly under-represented.
By offering a superior STEM education to all children, we ensure that our future leaders will have the diverse experience, skills, and ideas they need to solve our most pressing problems and remain competitive in the rapidly changing global marketplace.
100Kin10 is fueling that future.
Addressing our nation's shortage of STEM teachers is an enormous challenge. To overcome it demands a unique entrepreneurial approach. 100Kin10 offers the vision, resources, and network, and adapts them as we learn what does and doesn't work, to help our 200+ partners meet their ambitious commitments to America's classrooms.
The magnitude of change our country needs in STEM learning is enormous and calls for a multifaceted, collective response. Rising to this challenge demands multi-sector collaboration to create urgency, will, and capacity. We can do more and better work together than we can alone.
