    In April, a separate report from the U.S. Education Department's National Center for Education Statistics said that more than half of U.S. students are not taking any science in their senior year of high school. The Education Department's report was based on transcripts of more than 20,000 graduating high school seniors from 277 public and private high schools.

    The NSB report cited three major trends that are combining to slow the growth of the U.S. science and engineering workforce: degree production, retirement rates, and immigration issues.

    Some say the decline of interest among U.S. students is because of a failure to inspire the nation's youth to pursue the sciences.
