This amazing student in Evansville Indiana was transformed by his senior project and a netbook. This is why we need MORE than standardized tests: senior projects and high school portfolios belong in the mix.
STEM jobs are growing but our proficiency is not. This means that we'll have the jobs but not the people to fill the jobs within our borders. Time for STEM careers to become cool – they definitely pay well.
I do wish STEM would become STEAM – add some arts into all that science technology and math.
