The Students on STEM infographic is from the Students on STEM Survey. In partnership with Change the Equation, the Amgen Foundation’s survey found that a large majority of teenagers like science and understand its value. However, common teaching methods, such as rote memorization, do not bring the subject matter to life in the same way as hands-on, real-world experiences.
