Triune participates in Congressional briefing on STEM education
Triune Specialty Trailers is invited to an upcoming Congressional briefing luncheon on STEM education on Thursday, October 1st in Washington, D.C. We are participating as a member of the Mobile Laboratory Coalition, a national partnership of science education programs whose common vision is to inspire an appreciation and knowledge of science and scientific inquiry.
At the Congressional luncheon, Triune and other members of the Mobile Laboratory Coalition will collaborate with STEM professionals, educators and partners from across the country. The Coalition will share strategies to engage our next-generation STEM workforce through the development and dissemination of traveling laboratories and education programs.
STEM education not only provides its recipients with opportunities for lucrative careers, it also provides sustained economic growth for employers who source educated and skilled talent for their organization. Some facts about the effects of STEM education and economic growth:
- Over the past 10 years, STEM jobs grew three times faster than non-STEM jobs. STEM jobs are expected to grow by 17 percent during the 2008–2018 period versus 9.8 percent growth for non-STEM jobs.
- The top 10 bachelor-degree majors with the highest median earnings are all in STEM fields.
Triune has extensive expertise in creating educational, training and exhibit trailers for scientific and educational purposes. Most recently, we have been honored to partner with North Central Michigan College and the Northern Lakes Economic Alliance in the creation of the Digital Fab Lab, a mobile education and marketing vehicle that supports careers in high-tech manufacturing. Our expertise in creating mobile scientific exhibits and training and education trailers for both private and non-profit institutions provides us with an in-depth understanding of mobile education challenges and solutions. We are looking forward to sharing our knowledge and helping to expand STEM education throughout the country.
