Aeromet believes fully in the importance of STEM education and as we have mentioned in previous blogs, members of our team sit on committee's that discuss the issues that come with STEM education and find solutions to problems by working with educational faculty to prepare their students for the workforce.

There has been a lot of media coverage lately in the STEM to STEAM movement, and we believe that the inclusion of the "A" is exceptionally important. In short terms, STEAM represents Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics. The addition of the arts to STEM education and projects is not something that can be overlooked.

Innovation in manufacturing is something that drives us as an industry and while in the past, most innovation has come from the STEM subjects, there is an opportunity now for art and design to help lead the way in innovation.

If we as a country and a culture can seamlessly weld together the technical with the creative, all of our products and services will be much better off.

How do you feel about the inclusion of the arts into the STEM movement. Do you feel it will help or hinder your business? Will a candidate for employment with a fully rounded skill set have a better chance in the future? We'd love to hear what you think in our comments section.
