Physics as a Door into STEM Education



Too many US students do not want to do science – that’s just a fact. The growth in the number of bachelor degrees in STEM-related fields happens mostly due to university students with foreign origins.

Business community names as the biggest problem is inability to keep those foreigners with STEM degrees (more on that is in What Would Businesses Do if No Foreign Students Could Come In the Country Anymore?).

I think the problem is completely different.
The actual problem is US school graduates do not want to do science.
Why?
And what can we do about it?
On January 17th I gave a talk on the matter.
Pleas follow this link for the details.
