Is STEM enough to win in the innovation economy?

Is STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) the answer to preparing our kids to be the innovators of the future? That’s the question I was recently asked during the Q&A session at the end of a speech. Based on what other attendees said, I got myself wound up about the question and my belief on what is really needed.


In a nutshell, while STEM is a great start, its not sufficient to win in the emerging creative / innovation economy.

Whats missing?

  • Critical thinking skills
  • Discovering personal creativity
  • Learn that failure builds self-confidence
