    The article did mention the fact that not everyone needs to go to college. By extension, it could be argued that not everyone needs to be in a STEM-related field either. But there are a lot of manual labor jobs that are in STEM too. Point being, the world isn't as bleak as some think it is.

    @illuminated,
    Yes, but increasingly, STEM-related careers will be making manual-labor jobs more obsolete. The whole point of TSA is to prepare students for the jobs of the future, not those of the past that require little training. There will always be a need for manual labor jobs and that's ok, but so is expanding your skillset to prepare for the future. It's like that lady in "Hidden Figures;" they saw that her job was going to become obsolete with the advent of the IBM mainframe, so instead of insisting on continuing to do her old job, she schooled herself up in the new tech. When then opportunity arose, she was ready to meet the challenge.

    Kudos to these kids for engaging in something that expands their minds, their skillsets, and their employability.

    A lot of jobs will still be in manual labor too. Not every person needs to be in STEM.
