Over three quarters (76%) of UK parents would like their children to choose careers in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM), according to a survey commissioned by Shell’s national schools’ competition, The Bright Ideas Challenge. This is despite more than a third of parents (36%) saying they lack the knowledge and confidence to give STEM careers advice to their children.
TI is doing this by investing in education initiatives and areas that help both teachers and students alike love, understand and apply STEM subjects toward real-world issues. Worldwide, TI encourages the use of TI’s technology that helps teachers teach and students learn. It is TI’s belief that fun, interactive learning tools and resources nurture natural curiosity in how and why things work, inspiring future engineers, and even tomorrow’s scientists, mathematicians, doctors and teachers.
