September's Question

Growing doesn’t just happen on the farm. At Wilbur-Ellis, our scientists, agronomists and others across the company use science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) every day, as we grow our business and serve customers in agriculture, animal nutrition, chemicals and energy.

What role do you see science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) playing – today or in the future – for Wilbur-Ellis or the broader world? And what would you tell kids about the importance of studying STEM in school as they prepare for the jobs of tomorrow?

Submission Deadline: September 30, 2020

Tip for answering

Businesses of all kinds – including Wilbur-Ellis – will be affected by advances in fields that rely on STEM, like robotics, artificial intelligence, big data, transportation (think self-driving vehicles), drone management, alternative energy, automation, telemedicine, healthcare, and genetics, to name a few.

One way to answer the September question is by discussing where you think we’ll see the greatest advances (or disruptions). We also welcome your thoughts on how a young person can prepare for jobs that may not even exist today!
