Education Insight to Meet STEM Challenges

In October, the chapter welcomed Keith “Mac” McIntosh, vice chancellor for information technology and chief information officer for Pima Community College. McIntosh shared information on the 22 Department of Homeland Security-categorized science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) programs that Pima instructs and their important role in meeting energy sector, aviation technology and additional STEM-related careers in Tucson and the southwest. He also shared Pima’s initiatives to develop STEM education and instructors in line with meeting Department of Education Strategic Plan initiatives, especially the outreach and partnership of Pima with the local community and programs to encourage education and excitement about STEM for students in K-12th grades. Following an engaging question and answer session, McIntosh shared the importance of his STEM-related degrees in facilitating his transition from the Air Force to a civilian career field and encouraged the enlisted attendees in particular to pursue education for the opportunities that it facilitates.
