Directorates, the Directorate for Education and Human Resources
(EHR) and the
Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering

is critical that our nation maintain a competent, competitive and
workforce, including teachers. Therefore, NSF aims to inspire and
next generation of that workforce, while ensuring that it has the
competencies, and preparation to be successful. As we transition
to a global,
knowledge-based economy that is often driven by information
innovation, it is increasingly important that STEM workforce
includes a strong foundation in computing. Thus, the STEM-C
program addresses both the need for advances in K-12 STEM
as well as the need to elevate the inclusion of computer science
