Careers With STEM is a series of career guides targeted to high school students, inspiring them to pursue an education and career in Science, Technology, Engineering or Math.

DepEd Secretary Leonor Magtolis Briones said the Philippines must now focus on producing a new breed of learners who think critically with an emphasis on developing STEM skills.

This is otherwise written as: STEM + X = Jobs of the future.

Many blockchain projects to come out of the Philippines embrace STEM + X, such as Blockchain + Financial Inclusion = i2i by UBx or Blockchain + Disaster Response = Life Mesh.

Leah said she was lucky to meet Claire Bayoda, co-founder of TrashCash, and her team at a Facebook event during Philippine Startup Week 2019, just after Trash Cash placed second at the IMPACT Hackathon by Impact Hub Manila.

The 24-hour hackathon brought together 10,000 developers, designers and entrepreneurs across the Philippines and Asia Pacific to create technology-based solutions to positively impact society in alignment with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

“I believe we’ll see greater support from the private sector to build strength and resilience into the Philippines’ talent pipeline, as corporate’s realize that it is not the sole responsibility of the government to educate and equip young Filipinos for the jobs of the future.”
