AIR DATE: January 24, 2013

The national push for more education in science, technology, engineering and mathematics began a few years ago. In 2007, Nevada ranked low in the number of science and engineering degrees that were awarded. What has changed since then?

GUESTS

Barbara Moskal, Director, Center for Assessment of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, Colorado School of Mines

David Crowther, Professor of Science Education, University of Nevada Reno
