STEM Skills Gap in Oklahoma

  • 6,071 STEM Job Openings/year in Oklahoma
  • 6,058 STEM degree graduates (from OSRHE)
  • 2,968 leave STEM pipeline and/or the State

In 10 years, average annual openings: 6,701 each year.

STEM Education

Oklahoma is expected to have to replace 40% of the existing STEM workforce.

We believe Oklahoma needs to accomplish three things:

  • equal education opportunities for all students
  • highly effective STEM educators
  • the leveraging of resources and forging of partnerships to strengthen these efforts.

Our engagements

Our initiative is to excite young students about STEM and encourage them to enroll in science & math class.
We believe we can promote awareness by sustaining the support of creative ideas, initiatives, and innovations that contribute to the untapped interest in our state. We aim to recognize opportunities concerning STEM that can be shared, adapted or adopted by anyone.

Our goal is to ensure Oklahoma students become leaders inspired, educated and prepared to solve the challenges in a world of emerging STEM careers. We hope to provide youth with alliances, leadership, support and resources. It is the community’s responsibility to allow for the design and implementation of effective STEM learning environments and prepare students to make informed decisions on STEM issues and careers.

Makerfest offers students the ability to become a key part of transformational solutions, unlocking untold potential.

STEM Safari

This is an extraordinary safari into the ever complicated maze of future careers. The foundation brings together employers, educators, students, and parents for a ride through the S.T.E.M. careers ahead.
