The Confederation of British Industry figures the country needs an extra 2.4 million new chemists, physicists, engineers, and lab technicians by 2014 to meet growing demand from industry for high-tech workers. Yet the number of graduates in physics, engineering, and technology in Britain is actually falling.
The same is true across Europe. Without urgent action, warns a European Commission advisory group, the European Union will fall well short of the additional 500,000 researchers it needs by 2010. Meanwhile the U.S. increasingly is relying on foreign students to fix its science gap.
Hooking Kids Early
Enter London-based computer games studio PlayGen and global nanotechnology consultancy Cientifica, which have teamed up to produce NanoMission, a series of 3D educational games meant to teach and inspire 12-year-old to 16-year-old kids about nanotechnology, an emerging science of manipulating materials and devices at the atomic scale that has the potential to revolutionize fields such as medicine.
