The acronym STEM—science, technology, engineering, and mathematics—describes a range of academic disciplines that have become more important than ever to the FBI’s mission of protecting the American public.
On November 8, 2017—National STEM Day—the FBI hosted a live Twitter chat to answer questions about STEM and the FBI. During the conversation, employees from across the Bureau answered questions and provided resources for those interested in learning more about STEM at the FBI.
The question-and-answer session generated questions that users sent to the Twitter hashtag #AskFBI. A transcript of the conversation can be seen below. The questioners’ identities and some Twitter-specific symbols have been removed, but the conversation can be viewed on the FBI’s Twitter page or by using the hashtag #AskFBI.
