TERRE HAUTE -

A Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology professor is helping shape the country's STEM efforts. Daniel Moore contributed to the National Science and Technology Council’s report on America’s Strategy and STEM Education, which was released last week.

Important issues include exploring STEM literacy, increasing diversity and inclusion and preparing the STEM workforce to meet future challenges by developing partnerships between schools and local businesses.

The electrical and computer engineering professor is stepping up as a member of the subcommittee reviewing federal coordination in STEM education. In his previous role as a State Department STEM fellow for a year, he is prepared to help the federal Office of Science and Technology Policy recommend education policy and goals for the next five years that will help America win the global competition for science, technology, engineering and mathematics talent.

Moore proposed and marked changes in the final six drafts of the plan, and he will be part of the implementation plan writing committee which will spend early 2019 providing details of how the goals will be addressed and accomplishments evaluated. He also will work with a variety of agencies to provide guidance on STEM educational curriculum, classroom materials and learning activities.

“It is important to understand that a STEM knowledgeable citizenry, not just the technical workforce, is recognized as essential for continued U.S. growth, and that departments and agencies across the U.S. government are making strong commitments to invest in the plan,” Moore said. 

Moore has been a member of Rose-Hulman's faculty for 22 years.
