Living in the 21st century, I'm sure you hear that technology is the future. Communication methods can vary from texting to tweeting. Art or music can be created through different applications on a tablet, computer, etc. Lights can be turned on and off through your phone. Instead of reading books, people listen to them. All these technologies are designed and constructed through STEM; science, technology, engineering and mathematics. No matter what job you have or will have in the future, technology will influence whatever you do. If you are a teacher, SmartBoards will be placed in your classroom. If you're an architect, blueprints will be digital.
As a teenager, I wonder what it would be like--to create technology that people can use everyday. Having a job in the STEM field is all about making life easier, more productive and simple. For example, automatic doors, elevators and cars are things we take for granted. But they make our lives better. The world is going on a path that mostly involves technology and science. It holds numerous job opportunities with fields that are endless.
Next time you go out, take note of all the things you see that have made your life easier or changed your life through technology and science. What is one thing (STEM related, of course) that has made your life more simple?
