To become confident public citizens, young people must develop scientific literacy; they must be able to apply math and science concepts to everyday situations, from evaluating statistics cited in a newspaper article to assessing arguments on climate change. Those who teach science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) must reach beyond those who are traditionally interested in these fields and connect with a more diverse pool of potential scientists. Students from disparate backgrounds bring different perspectives to problem solving, which may lead to novel discoveries, inventions, or solutions if they become engaged in STEM learning and careers. It's important to figure out how technology can facilitate learning in these content areas; at the same time, we're figuring out how technology is changing the content areas themselves.
