The Ben and Esther Rosenbloom Foundation, in partnership with the Jewish Funders Network, has created a $1 million matching grant initiative to strengthen formal and informal STEM education in Israel for grades K-12 and generate a greater ongoing philanthropic commitment to the field.
The economy is changing, and all careers now require candidates to possess collaborative, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills—the kinds of competencies that the STEM disciplines are especially good at teaching. A strong STEM education can help students become resilient critical thinkers and thrive in a technologically-driven world.
Stakeholders across sectors must work together at a deeper level to provide students with high-quality learning, allowing them to apply concepts from the classroom to hands-on, real-world opportunities, and to develop the knowledge and skills they need to succeed.
Israeli organizations and programs focused on STEM literacy and excellence will be critical to bridging the gap between the current skills of students and the future needs of the workforce.
