STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. NASA recently teamed up with USAToday to help promote the importance of STEM in schools. They created a competition called "No Boundaries," designed to help students explore future careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, and maybe even get them interested in careers with NASA. Alotta Taylor, Director of Mission Support and Communications within NASA's Space Operations Mission Directorate, says our nation's future depends on students' interest in science.
