在美国，关于STEM教育的发展可追溯到1986年由美国国家科学委员会National Research Council发布的《本科的科学、数学和工程教育》报告，其报告中指出并建议培养优秀的科技人才、工程师、科学家以及数学家来提高国家竞争力和促进国家发展，其后几任总统皆为发展STEM教育进行宣传，而美国国家科学基金会National Science Foundation也一直在政策与财力上对STEM教育给予特别支持。
In the United States, the development of STEM education can be traced back to 1986 when the National Research Council issued the report "Undergraduate Education in Science, Mathematics, Engineering, and Technology." The report pointed out and recommended the cultivation of outstanding scientific and technological talents, engineers, and scientists to enhance national competitiveness and promote national development. The subsequent presidents all promoted the development of STEM education, and the National Science Foundation of the United States has also been providing special support for STEM education in terms of policy and financial resources.
In 2006, President Bush Jr. announced the "American Competitiveness Initiative" and proposed that training talents with STEM quality is one of the educational goals in the era of the knowledge economy and is regarded as the core of global competitiveness.
Since 2007, STEM education has been extended from undergraduate to K12 education, and American primary schools and middle schools have begun to implement STEM education.
In 2013, President Obama released “The National Science and Technology Council's Committee on STEM Education Releases 5-Year Strategic Plan” and announced that the federal government would invest more than $1 billion in the promotion of STEM education and teacher training.
2018年，特朗普总统制定了新五年战略计划《制定成功路线：美国的STEM教育战略》详细讲述美国STEM教育的规划外，还特别强调计算思维(Computational Thinking) 的重要性。
In 2018, President Trump formulated a new five-year strategic plan “Charting A Course For Success: America's Strategy For STEM Education,” which describes the planning of STEM education in the United States, with special emphasis on the importance of computational thinking.
With the support of the country and society, STEM majors are very popular, especially among Asian students. According to the international student map report published by the Student and Exchange Visiting Scholars Program (SEVP), in 2020, there are over 382,000 Chinese students who are studying in the United States which accounts for 31% of the total number of international students; and over 87% of international students who are from Asia studying STEM majors in the United States. Among them, there are about 195,000 Chinese students studying STEM majors, which is over half of the total number of Chinese students. On one side, STEM majors could provide extended OPT (Optional Practical Training) of 2 years than other majors to help students gain more work experience. Moreover, STEM majors graduates have good employment prospects and high-paying salaries. They are the reasons why more students choose to study STEM fields.
Because of the specialty of STEM fields, there are specialties in academic planning, major choices, school choices, background improvement, and academic guidance. Thus, WholeRen Education founded the STEM Student Support Center to satisfy the demand and provide professional consultants in STEM fields.
因此，由于市场和对于该领域专业的社会需求度普遍增多，美国厚仁教育集团自2021年成立STEM学生支持中心（STEM Student Support Center），为更多有意向学习STEM专业的学生提供全方位的教育支持和规划。
In conclusion, due to the market and the social demand for the profession in the STEM field are generally increasing, WholeRen Education has established the STEM Student Support Center in 2021 to provide a full range of educational support and academic planning in STEM fields for students who are interested in.
