On Tuesday, February 7 at 3 pm ET (tentative), the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) expects to release its report entitled “Engage to Excel: Producing One Million Additional College Graduates with Degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.” OLI director Candace Thille served on the working group to produce the report.
This report provides a strategy for improving STEM education during the first two years of college that we believe is responsive to both the challenges and the opportunities that this crucial stage in the STEM education pathway presents.
The report will be released at a public briefing that will take place in the auditorium of the American Association for the Advancement of Science at 1200 New York Avenue, NW, Washington DC (closest metro stop: Metro Center).
The timing of this event is subject to change. To attend the event in person, we ask that you register here, and we’ll email registrants with the final details. The event may be video webcast as well.
