Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is continuing her push to encourage more young women to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and math.
    
Gillibrand outlined her plan for so-called STEM jobs Monday at the Rochester STEM High School along with Mayor Lovely Warren and other local officials.

The senator says she will push for federal measures to help bring more STEM-related programs.

Gillibrand announced three proposals as part of her innovative education agenda. The STEM Gateways Act would provide funding to help schools implement STEM academics. The Educating Tomorrow's Engineers Act would help increase student achievement and interest in hands-on learning. The Computer Science Career Education Program would establish a grand program to encourage the development of computer science career education programs.
