From Teach.com comes this infographic highlighting the decline of STEM interest in the US.

“If you want to make a difference in the life of our nation, if you want to make a difference in the life of a child, become a teacher. Your country needs you.”

– President Obama, 2011 State of the Union Address

Sometimes the full breadth of the conversation around Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education is hard to take in all at once. For this reason, Teach.com has put together an infographic highlighting the beginnings of the STEM focus in America, the decline in STEM interest, and its recent resurgence as we strive for global competitive advantage through mastery of STEM research and education.

Internet Revolution Creates A Digital Divide

A strange phenomenon is happening today in technology: it’s evolving, it’s proliferating, and it’s changing the way people learn. But more than that, it’s creating a knowledge gap that’s affecting a certain demographic of people in the world.
