STEAM Emphasis

Students are becoming disillusioned with science. Interest and proficiency in science and math falls from 36% in the fourth grade to 17% by the end of high school, with only 6% graduating college with an advanced technical degree. (Modeling Student Interest in Science, Raytheon Company, 2007)

A majority of students view science as something that is unexciting, just boring facts that scientists know, and that students are required to learn. (Studying Motivational Strategies, Pickens, 2009)

This is of concern because in the next decade demand for professions involving knowledge of science and technology are predicted to increase by 47%, with the labor force increasing by only 15%. (Attitudes of Middle School Science Learners, Martin, 2011)
