Building the Workforce of Tomorrow

STEM studies stimulate young minds today and prepare a workforce for the jobs of tomorrow. These lessons—designed by Tennessee Valley teachers for practical use in the classroom—may be formative steps for tomorrow’s doctors, civil engineers, nuclear scientists, computer programmers, or robot designers. With a strong foundation in STEM learning, the potential is limitless.

These lessons are also an investment in the future of the Tennessee Valley, which is constantly evolving to become a better place to live, work, and play.
