Virtual Resource Library:
The Works has compiled a resource guide for educators to integrate business and industry grounded in STEM education principals into the classroom. These businesses welcome the opportunity to reach students and educate them about the importance of STEM education, the education and skills needed to be employed at their locations, and available careers. These industries are eager to staff future workforces with qualified employees from surrounding communities and know the successful future of their business depends on the students of today.
