How Do We Get More Kids Into STEM?

It’s easy to say we need more kids interested in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), the challenge comes in finding ways to accomplish it. Whether it’s the toys they play with as kids, or the classes they take as students, we are experiencing a surge in the STEM movement to (at least) encourage children to develop the basic skills involved in engineering and science, so they can decide for themselves if it’s more of a future than an interest.
