LOS ANGELES, April 15, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — How do we find talent for the 4.3 million unfilled jobs in tech by 2030? It starts with fostering STEM education in the younger generations. The California Senator for the 29th District, Ling Ling Chang, since taking office has demonstrated a strong commitment to technology, reflected in being named California’s inaugural STEMx Policy Fellow — part of a multi-state effort to put an emphasis on STEM education – as well as a “Tech Champion” by the Computing Technology Industry Association.

Senator Chang’s upcoming initiative, the inaugural California Senate App Challenge Awards Ceremony, will expose K-12 students to coding and engage them in STEM fields.

I thank Senator Chang for their commitment and advocacy for STEM education to drive the innovation and jobs growth for future generations.”
