It is widely recognized that America’s future depends on an increasing emphasis on scientific and technological development. While this requires a broad-based emphasis on science education at all levels, we must go deeper than the popular notion of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). Science education must focus on developing the power of the mind to dig deeper into the causal principles of physics, life and mind. In his writings on education, Lyndon LaRouche set forth a program for this by guiding the students, from the youngest age, in the reconstruction of the seminal conceptual breakthroughs in science from ancient Greeks, to the Renaissance and then to the frontier discoveries and unsolved scientific problems of today. Put down the roots and the STEM will grow!
