Why the STEM Executive Summit?

Science is the process by which humankind works on the world’s toughest problems—and education is the way our 21st century learners will develop the critical thinking skills needed for the U.S. to stay globally competitive in a fast-changing, technology-driven world.

In the annual STEM Executive Summit, both Macmillan Education and Scientific American bring together policy and business leaders with the education and research communities to discuss and work on the most critical issues facing education today. To help foster ongoing collaboration, beyond the annual event, we welcome attendees to continue the conversation in this new collaborative digital space.


Who Are Macmillan Education and Scientific American?

Macmillan Education helps learners around the world achieve more: providing them with world-class content about STEM and other subjects in the most relevant, engaging and flexible formats.  In its inaugural issue in 1845, Scientific American proclaimed its enduring interest in supporting lifelong learning about science and technology, promising to be “worth five times” its annual subscription fee to students and their families.
