On March 15, 2017 SGIA attended a hearing held by the Senate’s Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies. The hearing, "STEM Education: Preparing Students for the Careers of Today and the Future", discussed the role of science, technology, engineering, and math in both primary and secondary education. Several stakeholders in the education field were present to encourage the incorporation of STEM fields in and out of the classroom. There was general agreement that students, especially young women, should be exposed to STEM subjects in the early stages of their education. One attendee argued that an interest in such topics would generate interest in other areas such as reading or writing. There was some general disagreement among the Senators present over whether such efforts should be mandated by law or rather encouraged through other means.
