Women, Minorities and STEM

Premiere Date:Thursday, May 26, 2011

Women are slightly more than half of U.S. residents, and by 2050, projections show minorities will become half of the U.S. population. So why are women and minorities still underrepresented in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) careers? We’ll take a look at programs in the state focused on changing the statistics by sparking interest in STEM early.

Producer/Host Rhonda Colvin with guests Brenda Terry, executive director of Alabama Mathematics, Science and Technology Education Coalition; Marilyn Lewis, education specialist with Will Technology; and Shannon Parks, education administrator at the Alabama Dept. of Education take a look at programs in the state focused on changing the statistics by sparking student interest in these fields early.

Viewers are invited to join the conversation by calling the one-hour program 1-866-552-0025 toll free or e-mail questions prior to the program at spotlightoneducation@aptv.org.
