Raytheon Unveils New STEM Education Model


On July 8, Raytheon Company presented their newly developed U.S. STEM Education Model. Analyzing approximately two hundred variables, such as student attrition rates and gender differences, the model maps out a student's academic career and predicts the likelihood he or she will graduate with a STEM degree and enter the industry or become a teacher. According to Raytheon, the model's primary goal is to help effective education methods rise to the top in order to increase the number of U.S. students who graduate in STEM fields. Raytheon has gifted the program to Business Higher Education Forum (BHEF), who has, in turn, made the program available for the public, encouraging users to suggest changes and new research to improve the model.
