There are many myths circulating about the state of science, technology, engineering and math education, according to a panel of STEM experts at the U.S. News STEM Solutions conference in Austin, Texas. Panelists noted that minority and gender gaps are not prevalent across all STEM subjects. "If I look at biology and chemistry classes, they are probably about 60 percent female, and there are a lot of students of color in those classes," said Maria Klawe, president of Harvey Mudd College. Experts also weighed in about ways to better address STEM teacher shortages by focusing specifically on areas of need within schools and geographic areas.
