During this decade, there is a tremendous decline in the number of American students entering science and engineering programs. This shortage of American students in science and engineering programs has a domino effect on the number of American scientists and engineers in U.S. companies. In today's world, it is strategically crucial and it is in the best interest of our country that U.S. citizens are employed in the areas of engineering, computer technologies, and high-tech security.
In order to motivate American students to pursue these fields of study, Harmony Science Academy initiated a program that encourages middle and high school students to select engineering and science departments. This project is supported by the Texas Governor's Office, Microsoft, and Dell Foundations. Because Harmony Science Academy has tremendous success in science and math, the State of Texas, Microsoft and Dell have selected Harmony Science Academies as T-STEM schools, and they have provided a grant to Harmony Schools. This grant is given to Harmony Science to prepare their students for science and engineering schools.
The University of Texas at Austin College of Engineering in collaboration with Harmony Science Academy of Cosmos Foundation helps promote exceptional academic success in the science and math fields.
