STEM Report Calls for Refocus in Education

A week and a half after the Collaboration Event, we came upon an article in T.H.E. Journal entitled, STEM Report Calls for Refocus in Education. The article outlines major action that must be taken immediately to increase the number of students enrolled in STEM degrees in college, and continuing on with these career paths.

According to the article, math and science skills are needed in the fastest-growing job fields, while “…only 8 percent of the total number of degrees awarded in 2001 were in engineering, mathematics, or the physical sciences”.

While the article does set forth some broad reasons why STEM subjects are lacking in the United States we would like to hear specific ways YOU think we can better infuse these topics into the curriculum.
