What are the greatest challenges facing the world today?
Protecting our environment, responding to climate change, developing new sources of energy, repairing our crumbling infrastructure, providing safe drinking water in the developing world, and enhancing human health through biotechnology: These are just a few examples of important problems that can only be solved through science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Yet the U.S. is falling behind other countries in developing the STEM talent needed to tackle these challenges. Founded in 2009, the West Point Center for STEM Education (CSE) is responding to this need with programs designed to inspire, attract, and develop STEM talent for America. Our work is integrated with Army and Department of Defense programs that are also dedicated to enhancing STEM education.
