The brief provides basic information on math, science, and technology as a fundamental need in our day-to-day lives, and highlights suggested academic coursework to better prepare young adults for the top growing careers. Technology permeates every level of our ever changing, advancing society. Todays employment outlook suggests the value of math, science, and technology coursework for future employment success. Top growth careers in the world today, as noted by the Department of Labors Occupational Outlook Handbook, all rely to some degree on math, science, and technology skills. Broadly defined, technology comprises the processes, devices, products, and systems through which individuals and organizations meet their needs and wants by modifying nature [adapted from Pearson, G., & Young, T. (Eds.). (2002). Technically Speaking: Why All Americans Need to Know More About Technology. Washington, DC: National Academy Press.]. In preparation for future career success, students can benefit by being well versed in basic math, science, and technology skills. These skills form the basis for a broad array of career opportunities. Table 1 suggests the pervasive need for math, science, and technology skills across the board, no matter which of the projected top growth careers is chosen. Basic math, science, and technology skills are essential for career success in the twenty-first century. It is not only science and computer-oriented careers that require fundamental math, science, and technology skills; in fact, many of the top growth industries require these same skills. Students, parents, and teachers should heed the value of math, science, and technology coursework and competence as elemental preparation for any career pursuit.
