STEM MINDs state of the art facility has furniture with a story. Canada is a global leader in education, but real changes are threatening core principals of traditional learning. Entrepreneurship and Collaboration are in demand skills a youth must learn to prepare for higher education. Most young Canadians are disengaged from STEM studies before high school graduation. We need to better prepare them for a future where disruptive technologies in the labour market will reward skilled workers. An understanding of science, technology, engineering and math will allow future generations to develop into critical thinkers, discoverers, entrepreneurs and problem solvers.
