Webucator Announces New Student STEM Program

I have been reading a lot about education recently and one can’t read about education without reading about the importance of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education for American high school students. STEM education is vital to the future success of our economy and our global competitiveness. According to the U.S. Department of Education the projected percentage increase in STEM related jobs outweighs other occupations.  For example, systems software developer jobs are projected to grow at 32% from 2010 to 2020; compared to 14% growth for all other occupations.

Technology is progressing at lightning speeds; from the phone in your pocket to the tools building our automobiles. As a technology professional, I can attest to the importance of learning and acquiring technical skills and knowledge. Today, more than ever before, organizations and companies around the globe are seeking intelligent and highly competent technology professionals. Technology is, and will continue to be, a driving factor in the success of our business and our economy.

So what are we doing about it? As a national training company, Webucator will provide free technology training to high school students.

We have developed a wide selection of self-paced technology courses, including courses on web development (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, etc.), Microsoft Office, and more, which we sell to companies and organizations. Effective immediately we are giving these courses away to US high school students.

To register for a course, students simply:

  1. Go to our Self-paced Courses page.
  2. Browse through the courses.
  3. Click the Order Now button next to the course.
  4. Enter STEM for the Coupon Code and click Validate Coupon.
  5. Complete the registration. Students will need to verify that they are a student between the ages of 13 and 18.
  6. For any registration questions, simply email: stem@webucator.com.

Here is a complete list of courses the students can take.

That’s all there is to it.  The courses are self paced, so students will need to have some discipline to get through them, but they will learn a lot if they make the effort. We’re hopeful that our courses will help students develop much needed skills in the future workplace.  Plus, a lot of this stuff is just fun to learn!
