Talent Development in STEM Disciplines: Diversity--Cast a Wide Net
Roberts, Julia Link
NCSSSMST Journal, v16 n1 p10-12 Fall 2010
Diverse learners are capable of becoming talented professionals in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM)--but they need opportunities to develop. "Just as in generations past, there are talented students from every demographic and from every part of the country who with hard work and with the proper opportunities will form the next generation of STEM innovators" (National Science Board, 2010). In this paper, the author describes diverse learners and recommends steps necessary to recognize potential talent and provide appropriately challenging learning opportunities to develop them to optimum levels.
