    There should be events happening so that girls start taking interest in math and science subjects more. Liked your event. Hope it went well on Feb 16th.

    Americans are falling beinhd on science and math because politics play a big role in it. Many scientists and mathematic experts are being held back by strict politics and laws. If our politicians put away their diffences and work together, we would have one common ground for science and math research. And we would have the same or more budgets for our scientists and math experts to work with. Whenever different party takes the office, they either slice the budget down to barely nothing. Or the politicians ask the scientists and math experts to go in different directions for the research. Therefore, our generation and future generation are moving away from science and math major because of this reason and many others. I believe if Americans want to be back on the superiority seat in science and math, there should not be limit on the budget and restrictions on what they can do and what they can’t do. If America fall beinhd on science and math, America may end up trailing Europe and Asia for a very long long time.
