Almost half of students expressed an interest and/or revealed an affinity for STEM in an interest inventory, according to this national study by ACT. A concern is the 8.5% of students with a STEM affinity but no interest in pursuing a STEM major. Math and science achievement levels were highest among those students who had both expressed an interest and showed an affinity in the interest inventory.
