How to fix the engineering crisis #STEM @TXInstruments @intel @NIglobal @MathWorks @MicrochipTech @avnetdesignwire

The engineering industry is concerned about the lack of interest in STEM (science/technology/engineering/math) studies and careers from the youth of the United States.

The problem has reached all levels of public acknowledgment—from President Obama’s commenting on the need for STEM graduates in his January 24 State of the Union address to Sesame Street , which is incorporating more science and technology into its programming and which made “engineer” a word of the day in a September 2011 episode.
