Preparing a New Generation

Recent assessments have well-documented how poorly the United States is doing in educating its young students in math and science, compared with other countries. The good news is that for many of our active research scientists, this realization of the younger generation's deficiencies in understanding basic science represents a watershed moment, propelling them into action – and involvement in Education and Outreach. This sense of shared responsibility in correcting this national education embarrassment may then enhance the work of COSEE, as the opportunities offered are seen as avenues for scientists to make a difference in educating the next generation - and ultimately making the world a better place.
