From a presentation on the Engage to Excel report on STEM education by the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology:
* One study found that students in traditional lecture courses were twice as likely to leave engineering and three times as likely to drop out of college entirely compared with students taught using active learning techniques.
* Students in a physics class that used active learning methods learned twice as much as those taught in a traditional class, as measured by test results.
* Nearly 60% of students enter college without the math
skills needed for STEM majors.
* Students who engage in research early in college are more likely to
persist in STEM majors.
