Friday, we're honored to join U.S. Senator Rob Portman for a discussion on the future of education. His office has organized a roundtable discussion titled "Future of STEM in Ohio" and we'll be there. 
 
Portman co-chairs the bipartisan Senate Career and Technical Education (CTE) Caucus. This group of 26 senators aims to expand high-quality, rigorous career and technical education to prepare students for college and career. We’ve spoken to the group before, when Battelle Research Leader Jeff Geppert spoke to a Congressional Staff Briefing on Feb. 10, 2017. 

Now, Senator Portman is turning the focus to schools. He’s invited a series of Ohio organizations to speak about the intersection between career technical education (CTE) and STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education. It's a smart connection. Both STEM and career technical schools share a focus on allowing students to learn through solving real-world problems.
 
To support this work, we're proud to unveil a new report on Ohio's 44 STEM schools. Throughout June, we worked to survey schools in the Ohio STEM Learning Network. As Senator Portman kick offs a new conversation on STEM in this state, we're pleased to unveil data from those responses.
 
One key finding: Last year, students in Ohio STEM schools logged a jaw-dropping 81,000 internship hours. 

Check out the Ohio STEM Learning Network blog next week for details about how the roundtable discussion went.
