Quote of the day: from President Barack Obama’s 2nd Inaugural address on 1/21/13:

We cannot cede to other nations the technology that will power new jobs and new industries.  We must claim its promise.
He is talking about the jobs we are preparing you for as STEM (critical) thinkers.  Are you ready to claim the promise??!!  What are you doing to prepare??
