The Honorable Eddie Bernice Johnson is a member of the Subcommittee on Research and Science Education.
Some notes, quotes and comments:
"We have lost the edge, and we need to regain it."
We must motivate and direct our youth into areas that interest them.
We do not want our nation to lose its competitive edge. We must engage in our kids in STEM and the sciences!
"For children to believe (they can succeed in the sciences) they must see someone first."
"We must educate as rapidly as the changes we are seeing."
Me must use innovation and education together to spark students' interest.
Our nation still has many questions that need answering. They start with the sciences. And the pipeline begins in Pre-K.
Get the parents excited about STEM for their kids also!
"Keep Congress informed about these programs so that they will continue to invest in it."
