Scientists are calling for our future need...

Moving at the Speed of creativity hosts a podcast from Dr. Steven Beering about future needs in STEM fields: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. We need to strengthen our investment in our future by encouraging and supporting students to pursue these fields.

More importantly, students need to view the sciences as dynamic possibilities instead of dry, disconnected texts. Meaningful, relevant discourse about topics of current and future importance is needed as well as a focus on critical thinking that provides students an opportunity to think like a scientist.

The podcast is worthy of time and attention and can be heard here.
