The article presents information on the results of recent studies on science, technology, engineering and mathematics. 60% of future jobs will need training that only 20% of today's workers possess. The U.S. must prepare K-12 students to be productive workers and citizens in order to maintain its economic leadership and compete in the new international economy. Approximately about only sixty-five thousand American kids participated in the annual Worldwide Intel International Science and Engineering Fair.
