Abstract: 

"The United States has lost its competitive edge in math and science education ( National  Math + Science Initiative, 2013). And work in science, technology. engineering, and mathematics (STEM) is no longer a career of choice. Some studies attribute this to a lacl of student interest (Hall et al, 2011). The authors discuss their experiences and results of informal research that led to their position that Students’ level pf basic skills, ability to think critically, and ethiocal commitment are major factors in determining the success and continued interest of science Majors.”
