UNO aims to fulfill Nebraska workforce needs through STEM education statewide

The University of Nebraska at Omaha, a Bio Nebraska member, is featured in a special by the Omaha World-Herald that highlights STEM education in the state and the important role this education plays in supporting Nebraska’s workforce needs.

If students knew that what they learned in science, technology, engineering and math courses could make a difference in the world and their community, would they pursue related careers?

That question is what compelled University of Nebraska at Omaha Professor Chris Moore – an expert on chemistry and physics education – to author high school curricula that are the first chemistry and physics programs to fully align with Nebraska’s new college- and career-ready standards for science.
