Efficient Transfer of Educationally Useful STEM Equipment from Federally Funded Universities to Public Schools

ALISHA DUA

Alisha highlights the negative implications of the severe deficit of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) professionals that the US is currently facing. Public education does not provide the tools necessary for students to maintain an interest in STEM subjects. She proposes a mandatory transfer of out-of-date, but still usable, STEM equipment from federally funded universities to public schools to provide the opportunity for public school students to deeply engage with STEM subjects.
