2010 Science and Engineering Indicators Report

The National Science Board released its Science and Engineering Indicators 2010 report.

According to the report, produced every two years, the state of U.S. science and engineering is still strong, but our nation’s global primacy in science and engineering has significantly dropped in recent years, largely because of rapidly increasing capabilities among East Asian nations, particularly China.

The detailed report also presents information about elementary and secondary science and math education, the science and engineering labor force, and public attitudes and understanding about science and technology, among other things.

Any thoughts on how the findings in this report should influence the direction of BDPA programs and services over the coming year?
