I recently spent a few hours watching the science channel, extreme engineering channel, and the discovery channel. In watching these programs it appeared to me that we were terribly absent from the wide shots that showed people working in the areas of STEM (science-technology-engineering-mathmatics) Many of the programs were shot in the late 80's and 90's so I did some additional research and found that although black people are going to college in greater numbers than ever before, black students are less than 1/3 of students majoring in STEM fields of study. WHY IS THIS? Future job growth in areas that will pay the most and provide the best opportunities for entrepreneurship both globally and nationally are in the STEM fields. I hope our young people don't miss this opportunity because the window of opportunity won't be open long before the market is over-saturated if it isn't already. Opinions please. Thank you.
