Book Description:
The success of the United States in the 21st century, its wealth and welfare, will depend on the ideas and skills of its population. As the world becomes increasingly technological, the value of these national assets will be determined in no small measure by the effectiveness of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education in the United States. STEM education will determine whether the United States will remain a leader among nations and whether we will be able to solve immense challenges in such areas as energy, health, environmental protection, and national security. This new book explores a strategy for improving K-12 STEM education that responds to the tremendous challenges and historic opportunities facing the Nation. (Imprint: Nova Press)
