Students on STEM

The Amgen Foundation and Change the Equation (CTEq) recently announced results of a survey conducted to better understand what motivates U.S. high school students to study science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). The report, titled “Students on STEM: More Hands-on, Real-World Experiences,” shows that students want additional opportunities that will inspire them to explore careers in scientific fields, and teachers are uniquely positioned to stimulate students’ interest in STEM.

Teens: The Unacknowledged Experts in Science Education
In education policy circles, we spend so much time talking about young people that we sometimes forget to listen to them. Young people can have critical insights on schools and learning that escape the researchers and policy wonks. As we adults struggle to reform science education, we could stand to learn a great deal from students who, after all, have the most to gain from our efforts.

How Do We Get Teens Excited About Science?
We at the Amgen Foundation believe that an understanding of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) subjects, particularly science, is critical for students to be prepared for careers and citizenship in the 21st century. Today’s students are the innovators of tomorrow — the people who will find new ways to cure diseases and improve patients’ lives. We have a great opportunity to spark a love of science in students, tap into their motivations, and stimulate their understanding of the purpose and benefits of a strong STEM education.
