Pompeii the Immortal City

2020 – A Vision for the Future of Central Florida’s STEM Workforce

Just imagine – by 2050, your child could wake up to be driven in their autonomous vehicle to work on the Space Coast where humans will be taking off to colonize Mars. Orlando is home to the fastest growing STEM job market in the United States. As our global economy moves closer towards technology and automation, Orlando Science Center works to inspire and prepare the next generation for jobs in industries that may not even exist yet.

 

Our schools are preparing students academically and so is Orlando Science Center – with exhibits and activities that make learning fun and engaging. But preparing financially for postsecondary education is just as important.

 

As the newest Corporate Partner of Orlando Science Center, Florida Prepaid is helping to build the future STEM talent pipeline by helping families start saving early for college tuition costs. And now they’re supporting Orlando Science Center’s vision to create prosperity in your community through their generosity.

 

Technology has the power to create entirely new industries while automating positions that are routine and predictable. Many fear this rapid change in our economy and what that means for the future workforce, but Orlando is poised to grow exponentially during this new industrial revolution. In a new report from the Orlando Economic Partnership, it is anticipated there will be a huge demand not only for more jobs, but jobs that pay more. By 2030, Orlando is projected to create between 254,000 and 482,000 new jobs.

 

Of course, a career in autonomous vehicles, working on the next mission to Mars, or saving ocean wildlife from plastic contamination will require a new set of skills. K-12 and postsecondary education is a key component for the next generation of STEM workers who will fill these positions and change our world.

 

But with costs growing, a college education can seem out of reach for the average family. Orlando Science Center’s partner, Florida Prepaid, is a trusted resource that assists Florida families with saving for their child’s future. Florida Prepaid allows you to secure rates for tomorrow’s tuition and save, stress-free.

 

No one knows what the future holds, but we strive to create a bright future for the next generation and beyond. We thank Florida Prepaid for their generous support of our STEM learning experiences and look forward to the incredible achievements that participating students will accomplish in the future!
