Abstract

The current status of science and mathematics education is pathetic, especially in elementary to high schools. This has been caused in part by unenthusiastic teaching, which has repelled some students from these subjects, while others have been lured to more lucrative jobs, even before acquiring a university degree, such as call center jobs. Even students who may have pursued a career in science have often been turned away, either by a monotonous teaching style or by prevailing myths of alternative lucrative career paths. All of these have contributed to an alarming exodus of students from pursuing scientific and innovative research disciplines.
