Why are there Gaps in STEM?

This makes it challenging to create curriculum.

Not every teacher has the background to teach STEM and the demands far outweigh the supply.

In order for STEM to be successful, there needs to be a clear linear STEM education pathway from elementary school through high school. This includes scaffolding upon prior knowledge from one grade to another. 

Black, hispanic, native american, and women are all underrepresented in STEM fields. This also applies to students with different abilities, such as dyslexia, are on the autism spectrum, have mental health issues or other learning challenges that may deter them from wanting to enter STEM fields.
