“We need to have more girls interested in math, science and engineering”

President Obama’s words on girls and STEM:

“One of the things I that I really strongly believe in is that we need to have more girls interested in math, science and engineering. We’ve got half the population that is way under-represented in those fields and that means we’ve got a whole bunch of talent that downstream is not being encouraged the way they need to and so the White House Office of women and girls has been partnering with the Department of Education so that our STEM education agenda, trying to get more math and science and technology education in the schools, also focuses on making sure underrepresented groups like girls are encouraged in these fields.”

President Obama gets it – when will the entertainment industry get it?
