UW-Green Bay’s focus on STEM careers featured

UW-Green Bay and its partners are building a $15 million innovation center focused on introducing young people to STEM careers (science, technology, engineering and math) in order to encourage those pursuing STEM careers to stay within the state. “Jim Dobinski, managing director of Neenah-based Stellar Blue Technologies is bullish on the IT and technology sector in Wisconsin. Tech jobs and businesses are not something of the future; they’re in Wisconsin now and people need to know about them. ‘We have drones in the air, we have virtual reality, we’re building robots. It’s so cool,” he said. “Most of this is fun, but you’re going to have to know the basics — some coding and the platforms you’re going to be working on — you’re going to want to have that passion to be a geek. If you have that, you’re going to find somewhere in the IT field to fit you.’” UW-Green Bay student Jason Ruckel also talks about wanting to stay in Wisconsin after he graduates with a degree in computer science with an emphasis on information assurance and security.
