American Samoa schools to get STEM education help

By Associated Press

PAGO PAGO, American Samoa (AP) The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Honolulu is helping promote science, technology, engineering and math education in American Samoa schools.

The corps' Honolulu district says it formalized a partnership with the U.S. territory's government on Friday.

District Commander Lt. Col. Thomas Asbery says the partnership helps keep America "technologically strong" by inspiring young people to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math. Collectively, the subjects are known as STEM.

He notes that helping American Samoa strengthen STEM studies will also benefit the military. He says 1,600 students in the island's six high schools participate in the Junior ROTC program and many of them join the military.

According to the Department of Education, careers in STEM fields will increase 14 percent between now and 2020.
