For workforce. Development, national. Security. Concerns, an immigration. Policy. The acronym came, into common, use shortly, after an interagency, meeting. On science, education, held, at the US National. Science Foundation. Chaired by the then NSF. Director Rita. Colwell a. Director. From the Office, of Science, Division of, workforce, development for, teachers and scientists, Peter, Felicia, suggested. The change from the older, acronyms met to stem. Colwell. Expressing. Some dislike, for the older, acronym, responded. By suggesting. NSF. Institute. The change. However. The acronym, stem predates, NSF. And likely, traces, its origin, to Charles Vela the founder, and director of, the Center, for the Advancement of Hispanics. In science, and engineering education. Kasi. In the. Early, 1990s. Kazi started, a summer program for talented. Underrepresented. Students. In the Washington. DC area called. The stem Institute. Based. On the program's recognize, success, and, his expertise. In STEM education. Charles, Vela was asked, to serve on numerous, NSF. And congressional, panels. In science, mathematics, and. Engineering education. It.

Teitelbaum. Also, wrote that the then current, national, fixation, on increasing, STEM, participation. Paralleled, previous, u.s. government. Efforts since World War Two to increase. The number of scientists. And engineers all. Of which he stated ultimately, ended, up in mass.
