In a letter published in The New York Times today, ASME Executive Director Thomas G. Loughlin responds to a Times editorial on Oct. 26 by calling on a coalition of public and private sector leaders to step up efforts to support science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education.
“We must address this issue comprehensively if we are to inspire the next generation to take up the engineering profession as an ideal way to help make the world a better place,” Loughlin said. Further, engineering has the potentional to “unlock students’s imaginations and to make their abstract science and math lessons come to life,” he said.
