House members approved three bills that would support individuals who aim to pursue careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math, Nextgov reported Friday.
The STEM Research and Education Effectiveness and Transparency Act would require the National Science Foundation to inform Congress about its efforts to encourage women and historically underrepresented groups to engage in government research and education programs.
The Women in Aerospace Education Act seeks to boost the participation of women in fellowship programs at NASA and national laboratories.
The Supporting Veterans in STEM Careers Act would give veterans more opportunities to pursue STEM-related jobs.
All three bills were approved as part of Congress’ “Science Day” and sent to the Senate’s commerce, science and transportation committee for review.
