"Our new state exam has writing and writing and writing on it, and students have to articulate everything. They can't just say 'two plus two equals four.'

"STEM education provides our students with opportunities to see beyond where they are today and to be exposed to possible careers, possible avenues for education that they may not otherwise have had."

  - Dr. Carter Davidson
    Director of STEM Research and Development
    Alhambra ESD

 

"Many students enter college and find out, 'Oh, this college doesn’t have the major I need for that job I just learned about.' Programs like Paxton Patterson’s are important to help students identify their interests and aptitude before they graduate high school."

  - Russell Weikle
    California Director of
    Career & College Transition Division
