Recorded Presentations

Building the STEM Workforce for a Robust Economy

2015 Materials Information Luncheon
September 16, 2015 • U.S. Capitol, Washington D.C.

These presentations explore the traditional issues surrounding the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) debate—such as how to build a more diverse, better equipped workforce to draw from and how the U.S. can compete in the global market for STEM professionals—as well as innovative ways to attract young people to STEM careers. Below, find introductory comments from TMS member Iver Anderson and U.S. Congressman Keith Rothfus and two full presentations from Ernest Levert and Suveen Mathaudhu.
