Economic and sociological changes have dramatically impacted the work place, creating a demand for more qualified workers. The U.S. educational system is not producing enough engineers and scientists to meet the challenges of today’s workforce. The need for a stronger migration towards STEM (science, technology, engineering & math) education is paramount as it is estimated that the U.S. will have more than 1.2 million job openings in STEM-related fields by 2018. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, there will be a significant shortage of qualified college graduates to fill them.
A+ STEM Labs was established in 2002, as a division of A+ Technology Solutions. The idea was to create a portable technology and science cart that could be moved from room to room and was a fraction of the cost of renovating an entire classroom and dedicating it to science. To date, there are more than 500 mobile labs integrated in the New York City school system.
The family of solutions offered by A+ STEM Labs, including the award winning A+ STEM Lab for Science, are comprised of cost effective tools designed to integrate science, technology, engineering and math into the U.S education system. The labs provide hands-on, inquiry based learning solutions that will prepare the workforce of tomorrow for the high tech careers of the today. Our purpose is to provide educational communities a cost effective STEM learning solution that improves teaching efficiency while engaging students with hands on technology.
