Save Our Science: How To Inspire A New Generation Of Scientists

In "Save Our Science: How to Inspire a New Generation of Scientists," long time Yale professor Ainissa Ramirez makes an impassioned call for a recommitment to improve science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education in our schools and throughout our society. She describes what habits we need to change to make STEM fun again, as well as a plan for how to increase every child's participation in these disciplines. The 21st century requires a new kind of learner -- not someone who can simply churn out answers by rote, as has been done in the past, but a student who can think expansively and solve problems resourcefully.215_Save_Our_Science__How_to_Inspire_a_New_Generation_of_Scientists_-_Ainissa_Ramirez.pdf

Missing From Science Class: Too Few Girls And Minorities Study Tech Subjects

A big reason America is falling behind other countries in science and math is that we have effectively written off a huge chunk of our population as uninterested in those fields or incapable of succeeding in them. View External Website

Afterschool Alert: Computing And Engineering In Afterschool

The number of jobs requiring proficiency in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields is projected to grow by 17 percent between 2008 and 2018, which is almost double the growth of non-STEM occupations. Computing and engineering represent a majority of these STEM jobs -- 79 percent will be in these occupations alone. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that there will be almost 1.5 million job openings in computing and more than 600,000 in engineering by 2020. Job opportunities in the computing field will grow by 30 percent more than the national average and the computing-related industry is among the fastest growing. Not only is there great opportunity within these fields, but they are also high-paying jobs -- both workers earn more than twice the average annual wage. View External Website
