The FBI Recognizes Those Who #ServeWithSTEM

This post was originally published on this site

On November 8, the Federal Bureau of Investigation recognizes the importance of the academic disciplines of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

STEM education prepares future leaders to solve the complex problems of the world—and also prepares those future leaders for FBI careers. Throughout the FBI, STEM skills are used to solve a range of problems, from determining the gender of a 4,000-year-old mummy to performing a study on soil to link a subject’s shovel to a location of investigative interest to identifying vulnerabilities and the need to better secure personal health data. The disciplines and the skills developed in the STEM fields are vital tools from which the FBI can draw on to fulfill our mission to protect the American people and uphold the Constitution.
