It has always been my opinion that the education and training of the next generation of professionals starts in the home. Society can assist though its educational systems but the beginning and foundation of a person’s upbringing has to be provided, fostered, and encouraged by the parents.
Others in the professional community can be called upon to assist in the educational pipeline. To that end, a committee was formed in our parish to develop input to the parish grade and middle school on STEM education (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics). Part of the committee’s task was to find websites that offer resources for teachers and students. These resources are just as well used by parents as they help their children explore their interests and talents.
Our committee published their results.
