Stop trying to make it "cool" and start making it interesting and useful to young people's lives? If they see it as a way to make money, or make something they want, they'll do it. Ever seen Breaking Bad?? ;)

I'm with Sylvie on this. It's not about making it "cool." It's about giving the kids who are interested in fun stuff, like STEM, but not exclusively STEM of course, a way to pursue what intrigues them. "Cool" is for losers. Losers who are so insecure that they shy away from what intests them, only because some half-wit classmates might disapprove of their interests. How pathetic is that? Kids form their interests very early on. What the educational system has to do is to nourish those interests, and more generally, discourage the popular notion in schools that "it's cool to be stupid." Being stupid and sullen is hardly cool. Kids need to be encouraged to feel secure in what they like.

I wonder if it's true, like the article states, that half of the high schools in the USA don't offer Calculus and Physics?

I don't know if any of you have seen a program called robot wars .... if kids can use robot to "battle" and "destroy" other things whilst learning.... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robot_Wars_(TV_series) have a look.... this is the way to go IMO Jeremy

With platforms such as the Arduino and Raspberry Pi being widely adopted by the DIY/maker community, I wonder if the mindset can be brought into education. What if classes such as carpentry/shop were replaced or offerred alongside a "Maker" class? Would you have taken that in school? I know I would have.

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
