Because STEM is so important for our children, our communities, and our country, we must encourage our students currently in our educational systems, as well as future generations of students, to understand and embrace the technology that affects them every day of their lives.
Students should be advised on the merits of taking as many math and science courses in middle and high school as possible. And these courses need to be taught by engaged and enthusiastic teachers using hands-on and minds-on activities. Making science and math courses fun and interesting will not only help students to learn, but will plant the “seed of interest” that could grow into an exciting and rewarding STEM career.
