Weekly Message: Expanding Educational Opportunities to Ensure Future Student Success

Wilmington, DE – In his weekly message, Governor Markell highlights the phenomenal work being done by educators in the STEM fields to better prepare their students for successful futures.

“Giving our students the best chance to thrive means exposing them to great educational opportunities in the STEM fields – Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. STEM jobs are increasing much faster than average, from computer system analysts and software developers to medical scientists and biomedical engineers,” Gov. Markell said. “With quality STEM education, our young people are developing the skills to thrive in our high tech world, and they can make Delaware a hub for growing industries that require expertise in these fields. And that will keep Delaware moving forward.”
