Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics are an integral part of education in a competitive global economy. According to several American studies over the past few years, U.S 15-year-old high school students ranked 18th in mathematics and 13th in science. These results were based on data from 34 nations. Some with higher rankings included much smaller and less diverse nations such as Estonia, Slovenia and Finland. It is apparent that the U.S. education system needs continued improvement in the support and teaching of STEM topics.
