Building Toy Company Click-A-Brick Applauds New Survey That Outlines Importance of STEM Skills

A new survey that finds the top 10 earning degrees are all related to science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) has gotten the nod of approval from, the team at building toy company Click-A-Brick, who says it nicely illustrates the importance of learning these skills.

Compiled by compensation consulting company PayScale, the top 10 bachelor’s degrees for career earnings are:

Petroleum Engineering

 

Chemical Engineering

 

Electrical Engineering

 

Materials Science and Engineering

 

Aerospace Engineering

 

Computer Engineering

 

Physics

 

Applied Mathematics

 

Computer Science

 

Nuclear Engineering

 

PayScale collected data from degreed workers in the United States (excluding advanced degrees) and analyzed both starting and mid-career salaries (earnings 15 years after graduation) for 120 of the most popular undergrad programs.

The Click-A-Brick crew says the findings of the new survey could even act as incentive for parents to introduce the STEM skills at an early age.

“We all want the best for our kids and not only does that mean them being happy, but having the best chance at success,” Click-A-Brick Co-Founder Jason Smith said. “The STEM fields are producing a lot of jobs at the moment and that should continue in the future. Nurturing interest in the STEM fields from an early age is one way to encourage children to at least take an interest in these fields.”

One way to facilitate interest from children in the STEM fields, the Click-A-Brick crew says, is to introduce them to STEM skills in the form of play.

“With information coming out like this new survey about the top earning degrees, everything seems to be pointing to the STEM fields as being the best shot at having financially fulfilling careers,” Click-A-Brick Co-Founder and Brand Manager Georg de Gorostiza said. “Not all kids are going to automatically have an interest in these areas, but anything that parents can do to point them in that direction is helpful for them, as it could foster a real interest in these fields and help give them a leg up in the future.”
