We've all seen the studies showing that students in America are falling behind in STEM subjects — STEM is shorthand for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics — and many in education and government are freaking out. The STEM Education Coalition warns that 60 percent of employers are having a hard time finding qualified workers, and that of 65 education systems worldwide, American students rank only 27th in math and 20th in science.
