Abstract

Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) has been a powerful engine of prosperity in the United States since World War II. Currently, American students’ performance and enthusiasm in STEM education are inadequate for the U.S. to maintain its leadership in STEM professions unless the government takes more action to motivate a new generation of U.S. students toward STEM careers. The current situation is that the U.S. is largely dependent on the foreign-born STEM workforce. This paper starts with a deeper look at the participation rate of American Students in STEM Careers and concludes with recommendations for how to motivate more U.S. students to pursue STEM careers.
