In Missouri, three out of the four fastest growing occupations are in STEM careers.
To help students prepare for STEM careers and close the education gap, MilliporeSigma localized partner STEMpact is working to transform STEM education and provide resources to teachers and schools in the St. Louis, Missouri area.
Seven-mile tunnel will improve water quality in Meramec River watershed, consolidate Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District wastewater treatment plant operations.
Construction has begun on the longest sewer tunnel project ever attempted in the St. Louis region – a project designed by WSP USA.
When complete in 2024, the 6.8-mile-long Lower Meramec Tunnel will enhance the region’s sewer network and improve water quality within the Meramec River watershed on the south side of the metropolitan St. Louis area.
MilliporeSigma is committed to accelerating access to health for people everywhere, including in St. Louis. The company has more than 2,200 employees in the area and is actively involved in the fight against COVID-19 with products manufactured at its St. Louis sites.
MilliporeSigma is dedicated to sparking curiosity in the next generation of scientists, and teams up with organizations that share the same passion for advancing science education. These community-led partnerships are focused on increasing access to science with populations historically underserved and underrepresented in scientific fields.
A dialogue was sparked in 2010 among St. Louis–area corporate leaders, spearheaded by Deborah Patterson, then president of Monsanto Fund, the philanthropic arm of Monsanto Company (now operating as Bayer), about the need to attract STEM talent to the St. Louis region. The group spent two years studying the problem. Their starting point was to perform a needs assessment and focus group research.
Cities can use innovations to manage infrastructure and improve services, communicate with constituents and make better decisions.
Imagine being able to find the most populated sidewalk for a late-night journey to the train station or knowing the air quality in your neighborhood, rather than your whole city.
Chicago’s Array of Things (AoT) helps residents and local leaders access this information and more. The AoT is a network of sensors that collect real-time data about the urban environment, ranging from carbon monoxide to traffic.
Science, technology, engineering and math is everywhere around us, from the complex to the simple. Take your smartphone, for example. This device wouldn’t be possible without the brainpower of engineers. Additionally, improved treatments and cures for diseases are possible because of scientists and medical professionals who have a deep understanding of the human body, but you can find STEM in something as simple as a water fountain.
MILWAUKEE, Wisc., September 5, 2018 /3BL Media/ – Rise Against Hunger, an international hunger relief organization, recently honored MilliporeSigma for its support in packing and supplying more than 500,000 nutritious meals to families in need across the globe. The Life Science business of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, operates as MilliporeSigma in the U.S. and Canada. MilliporeSigma has partnered with Rise Against Hunger since 2016.
The Mississippi River is the United States’ most well-known river which serves multiple purposes, including drainage for 40 percent of the United States’ waterflow and creating fertile ground where agriculture, trade and cities have flourished for centuries. It also serves as the drinking water source for 50 cities and 20 million people. But with all this development along its riverbanks, it has been subjected to centuries of pollution — especially during heavy rainfall.
To help fill a pipeline of future scientists and engineers, many teachers in the St. Louis area are “stemitizing” — integrating science, technology, engineering and mathematics concepts into all school subjects.
One such effort, STEMpact’s Teacher Quality program, trains 150 kindergarten through eighth-grade teachers on how to incorporate the concepts into their curriculum in hopes of building early interest in STEM careers.
