With its support of FIRST and FIRST North Carolina, Qualcomm is doing its part to bring innovation, collaboration, and STEM education to students all over the world. Qualcomm and FIRSTare working together to expose students early and give them the confidence they need to be successful members of the STEM workforce.
Science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education is essential for invention. And as a company of inventors, Qualcomm is laying the groundwork for the next generation of innovators by supporting K-12 STEM education and inspiring greater diversity in the STEM workforce. This is becoming increasingly important as the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that although STEM jobs are expected to grow at a rate of nearly double that of other fields, around 1.2 million such positions will be unfilled in 2018 because of a lack of applicable skills in the U.S. workforce.
Qualcomm is helping to build a diverse STEM workforce — for its own future, and that of the world — and thinks FIRSTplays a critical role in offering students exposure to real-world careers. With its support of FIRST North Carolina, Qualcomm is doing its part to bring innovation, collaboration, and STEM education to students in North Carolina.
