It’s no secret that the U.S. is struggling to keep up across science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) subjects. Our students are falling behind, ranking behind other countries and if we don’t do something soon, it will just get worse.

She explains how the time is now to step up to the plate and share what we can do to save STEM education.
