Description: This non-profit, non-partisan CEO-led initiative aims to "solve America's innovation problem. It answers the call of President Obama's Educate to Innovate Campaign to move the U.S. to the top of the pack in science and math education," with science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education for every child, focusing particularly on girls and students of color, who have "long been underrepresented in STEM fields." Read about programs such as The Advanced Placement Training and Incentive Program (APTIP) National Math and Science Initiative, K-8 Math Progressions (formerly known as Intel Math), UTeach, "Engineering is Elementary," and FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology). See, in particular, CTEq's STEMworks database of programs that deepen young people's learning in STEM. Former Intel CEO Craig Barrett, Time Warner Cable CEO Glenn Britt, Xerox CEO Ursula Burns, Eastman Kodak CEO Antonio Perez, and Sally Ride Science CEO Sally Ride joined forces with Carnegie Corporation of New York and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to form Change the Equation.
