Great news that Siemans is making such a large investment in NC STEM.  Encouraging more manufacturing and 'value creation' here in America will make our country stronger economically.  I look forward to seeing more of these types of investments in other parts of the country in the future.

SIEMENS AND STEM INITIATIVES

I definitely applaud the initiative Siemens has undertaken to promote STEM.  I'm almost to the point of believing private concerns such as Siemens, are much more capable of "growing" STEM professionals than our federal government.  I KNOW the oversight of these programs and money given is much greater and with less abuse as compared with the "fed". I am sure Siemens has the ability to track the results and those results should be significant.  

Dave Palmer just posted an article on the Indian MANGALYAAN Mars Probe and the success that mission is having.  With that in mind, we cannot allow our "edge", if we now have one, to slip.  Independent companies such as Siemens need to step up to the challenge as they have demonstrated.

Excellent post Rob.
