More than half of America’s economic growth is in the hands of only 5% of American employees! Are you in the 5%?

The study of science, technology, engineering, & math (STEM) is at an all-time low in America. Only 15% of the world's scientists are American, as opposed to the 40% of American Scientists less than 40 years ago!

Educational institutions and young students are over-looking the importance of STEM Studies. STEM professions are responsible for more than 50% of the United States sustained economic growth. They work hard to ensure that the can maintain the growth of their products without creating economic problems for our generations and future generations.

Although STEM studies are challenging, they are rewarding. For instance, IBM's STEM employees have created a new supercomputer that has the ability to perform 16,000 Trillion calculation in just one second!

What does this mean for America? Faster calculation results means scientists would be able to do thing like tell how the human heart reacts to new medicines in just two hours instead of two days. They would also be able to predict natural disasters faster for earlier evacuation times.

STEM studies are doing all this with just the help of 5% of American workers. Just imagine how far we would advance, if that number doubled to just 10%.
