The SySTEMic Solutions mission is to develop a sustainable STEM pipeline in Northern Virginia. We engage students in elementary school and inspire them to continue to pursue STEM education in high school, college, and in the workforce through a collaboration with schools, businesses and community organizations.
"Northern Virginia has one of the most diverse, multicultural populations in the world. However, segments of our population do not have the education and skill sets needed to participate productively in the knowledge economy that has been created.
We will be facing significant shortages of skilled middle-tier workers over the next two decades. Today SySTEMic Solutions impacts 4,000 students in Prince William area schools and we project that we'll reach 40,000 K-12 students across Northern Virginia in 2016.
There is urgency to act now and work together to build our STEM pipeline with students who are excited about STEM throughout their K-12 Years. I invite you to join SySTEMic Solutions and make a vital and sustainable impact in Northern Virginia."
