New study finds Interest in STEM is "contagious"

A recently multi-institution collaborative study between researchers at Florida International University, Oklahoma State University, Purdue University, Northwestern College, and University of Virginia found that being a in a high school biology, chemistry, or physics classroom with high number of interested peers could boots STEM career interests for other students. This infectious trend can also help improve grades. When students see their science classmates as very interested in the class, they are more likely to develop an interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) careers. This infectious trend also affects their academic success.
