Why STEM 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 STEM labs at all three campuses, RUSD students are preparing to satisfy this growing need.
Workers in STEM careers command 26% higher wages than NON-STEM workers.
With access to fully resourced STEM labs, RUSD students will be well prepared to pursue these leading-edge opportunities. Even those who do not pursue work in the STEM fields still need some literacy in these areas. STEM knowledge extends beyond a career: It is knowledge necessary for life in a 21st century world.
