Legislation proposed by Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., would create grants for schools to add science, technology, engineering and math programs in partnerships with nonprofits, a push she says is needed in order to get more students of all backgrounds into STEM fields. "Typically, in STEM fields, science, technology, engineering and math, it's typically white men. Very few women, very few minorities, very few from economically disadvantaged neighborhoods. So we want to change that," she says. "The point is all of our best and brightest should have opportunities to excel in the fastest growing industries."
Proposed bill would boost STEM training
