The Elements
The Challenge
Technical jobs in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields play an instrumental role in expanding scientific frontiers, developing new products and generating technological progress.

According to industry experts, by 2015, Florida’s workforce will reach a 100,000 person shortfall for “science and technology professionals.”

The Opportunity
The City of Altamonte Springs, in partnership with Seminole County Public Schools and industry supporters, aims to address Central Florida’s STEM workforce deficit with the Altamonte Springs Science Incubator (AS2I).

Building upon the relationships that exist among the City of Altamonte Springs, Seminole County Public Schools, Seminole State College, and the University of Central Florida, coupled with the economic development expertise of the AS2I Advisory Alliance and the Seminole County Regional Chamber of Commerce, the incubator will serve as a key feeder program for the Seminole County and Central Florida STEM workforce.

The Solution
AS2I creates practical STEM education experiences for Seminole County students through diverse collaborations among educators, professionals, volunteers, and corporate partners to:
  • Provide ongoing science outreach opportunities for Seminole County Public Schools students, teachers, and the community
  • Increase the number of students pursuing careers in STEM fields
  • Offer internships to extend the AS2I program and bolster a technically savvy workforce

More Information
AS2I education programs are held on Mondays and Tuesdays for groups of 75 to 150 Seminole County Public School students.
