Why the STEM Summit 4.0?


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 Learning 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 Learning & Scientific American?



Macmillan Learning improves lives through learning. Our legacy of excellence in education informs our approach to developing world-class content with pioneering and interactive teaching tools.

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.
