Prepare and Inspire: K-12 Education in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) for America's Future
America is home to extraordinary assets in science, engineering, and mathematics that, if properly applied within the educational system, could revitalize student interest and increase proficiency in these subjects and support an American economic renewal, according to a new report from an independent council of Presidential advisors. The 2010 report by the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) provides advice on a range of topics and makes specific recommendations to better prepare America's K-12 students in STEM subjects and also to inspire those students, including girls, minorities, and others underrepresented in STEM fields, to challenge themselves with STEM classes, engage in STEM activities outside the school classroom, and consider pursuing careers in those fields.
