– About three quarters of Canadian children believe that science and technology are fun, and that studying STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) disciplines would be an advantage for their future professional career. So, why are there so few students ready to embrace fields that would help them on any school path: University, college, polytechnical school, or apprenticeship?

– According to a new report titled “Spotlight on Science Learning: Shaping Tomorrow’s Workforce”, young students worry that STEM subjects are too difficult, with risks of poor grades and limited options. Parents can help to change this point of view by better informing their children about all the bright opportunities offered by STEM jobs and exposing the kids to this kind of activities as often as possible.
