Charity auction in aid of STEM Education

We need more students that excel in science, math, technology and engineering to become a contributor to the global technology marketplace. High tech companies have vacancies due to a lack of qualified candidates, and the demand for scientists and mathematicians is projected to grow dramatically. Over 50% of US 8th graders receive instruction from a science and math teacher without a relevant degree or real world experience to inspire their students.

The Computer History Museum, as a 2012 STEM Innovation Award Winner, and HP Catalyst Initiative participant, is proud to raise money for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education by hosting tonight’s Ethernet Celebrity Auction.

Your bids tonight will help educate tomorrow’s innovators.
