BRINGING Engineering & Science



October 24th, 2006



Technology companies in Arizona need students educated in Math & Science


Engineering Employment

(% of the workforce are Eng. Jobs)

Arizona in the 1st Quartile!

Source: National Science Foundation 2003


Nationally – Engineers and Scientists are

in the top 10 “prestigious occupations”

USA Today


Career Choices for High School Students

High School Kids in Arizona have engineering as a top 4 choice – Student interest is there!

Education level & Salaries

Advanced Technical

Degrees do matter

…..but it is nice to see data that confirms it!

salary by education level:

the need is real and the world is passing us by
The Need is Real and the World is Passing Us By…….
  • Craig Barrett, the Chairman of Intel, noted that Intel sponsors an international science competition every year. One year it attracted some 50,000 American high school kids. "I was in China 10 days ago," Mr. Barrett said, "and I asked them how many kids in China participated in the local science fairs that feed into the national fair [and ultimately the Intel finals]. They told me six million kids." ( IN ARIZONA WITH ALL OF OUR REGIONAL FAIRS WE HAVE ABOUT 3,000 ENTRANTS, NATIONWIDE it is about 50,000)
  • Craig also said:
  • “And you don't have to look very far in the United States to see the elements of the problem. If you look at what's happening, starting really at the top, look at what's happening in our graduate schools. In Physical Sciences, more than half the graduate students are foreign nationals. It's not because they are taking places of U.S. students who are interested. It's because there are no U.S. students who are interested in going after those advanced degrees.
  • If you look across the board at the number of engineers, we graduate 5 percent of the college graduates in the U.S. today with engineering degrees. If you go Russia, Germany, it's 33 percent. If you go to China, it's 50 percent of the college graduates have engineering degrees. That has to be a sign that there is a problem.”

Collectively as members of Industry, Educators & Government, we can and must have an impact on our children, grandchildren and students

We must inspire our students to excel and move

forward in Math and Science Education

to build the base for Success!

We owe it to our Families & Arizona to Leap Ahead!
