The problems that plague science and math teaching of our children in rural schools and the Black and Brown students trapped in under-resourced urban schools with poorly trained and overworked teachers has become as chronic, as the opioid crisis. This issue gives contributors as advocates for minorities in technologies, a platform to present perspectives on solutions for science and engineering advancement, on the question of “what works" and how technical organizations may collaborate.
We feature work on nanotube science and discuss the role of immigrants in science and raise a question. Can the 85,000 H1B Visa applicants admitted annually be gradually reduced by 10% by increasing the number of minority scientists and engineers graduated from US colleges and universities? We can address national security and meet the workforce demands for engineers and scientists by doubling the numbers of black and brown students who move through the gauntlets of our education system and into employment as scientists and engineers.
The Editorial Review Committee has set the forward plan for this publication. In upcoming issues we will solicit information from our readers and provide perspectives on issues of concern to STEM education. We remain keenly interested in hearing from readers on these associated science and engineering issues: Energy Development, Artificial Intelligence/Robotics, Innovation in Education, Global Defense Leadership, Economy and Jobs.
