In a previous blog, we discussed how science majors are paid more than students of other majors. However, the shortage of science majors in this country is forcing companies to search elsewhere for qualified applicants for these well-paying positions. The chief complaint for many former science majors who ditch the microscope is the difficulty of the coursework. These students are ill-prepared for the major, get discouraged, and eventually quit. Like any other difficult educational endeavor, starting out young may be the best way to develop a love of science that will help the student stick with it past the college level.
The holiday season is upon us. If you would like to encourage your child’s interest in science, have you ever considered putting a microscope under the tree?
