Teachers, Celebrate National STEM Day With Your Students

In honor of the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) community, today we are celebrating National STEM Day. These disciplines play a vital role in the advancement of scientific innovation and economic growth.

National STEM Day is an opportunity to encourage your students to explore and pursue their interests in STEM topics, which includes statistics. The demand for statistics degree programs and employees with statistical skills is soaring, and statistician was the number one job in STEM last year.

Statisticians and teachers explain why statistical literacy is an essential skill for students in our new video:
