Remarks from:
Dave Scullin, CEO, Communities Foundation of Texas
Al Smith, Jr., Group Vice President, Chief Social Innovation Officer, Toyota Motor North America

Panelists for this community event include:

WHY: 	As technology innovates, students must be equipped with the knowledge and skills to solve tough problems, gather and evaluate science, and make sense of information. Students learn these types of skills by studying science, technology, engineering, and math – the subjects that make up STEM. Both Texas and national projections suggest that over the next decade the majority of jobs will require strong talent in STEM skills. 
SPONSORS:	Communities Foundation of Texas, Educate Texas | Media Partner: Plano Profile Magazine
