This unique series is a collaboration between World Book and NASA’s Innovative Advanced Concepts (NIAC) program. Scientists tell how they grew from students to inventors and now tackle some of NASA’s biggest challenges.
Learn about alien caves, asteroids, solar wind, rovers, and much, much more! Meet the scientists and inventors that create these experiences.

93 out of 100 STEM occupations had wages above the national average
The national average wage for all STEM occupations was $87,570, nearly double the national average wage for non-STEM occupations ($45,700).
Employment in STEM occupations grew by 10.5 percent, or 817,260 jobs, between May 2009 and May 2015, compared with 5.2 percent net growth in non-STEM occupations.
If we don’t engage students by the 5th grade in STEM, 92% of boys and 97% of girls will lose interest.
The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn. -- from the book Why School? How Education Must Change When Learning and Information Are Everywhere, Will Richardson (2012)
