Why Steam Matters
In the United States, 80% of the fastest growing occupations depend on mastery of mathematics and scientific knowledge and skills. With access to fully resourced STEAM labs at all three campuses, RUSD students are preparing to satisfy this growing need.
Workers in STEAM careers command 26% higher wages than NON-STEAM workers.
With access to fully resourced STEAM labs, RUSD students will be well prepared to pursue these leading-edge opportunities. Even those who do not pursue work in the STEAM fields still need some literacy in these areas. STEAM knowledge extends beyond a career: It is knowledge necessary for life in a 21st century world.
