Catalyzing the Next Gen of STEM Global Citizens

STEM skills alone will not be sufficient to create the leaders we need to solve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Most of the defining STEM challenges transcend borders and require people to collaborate across cultures. This session will present a compelling case for why future STEM professionals must be empowered with essential global skills to successfully tackle pressing global problems. We will showcase innovative education solutions to achieve this result.
