Hispanic students, like all students, are more likely to move into science, technology, engineering, and mathematics careers if they show an early interest in STEM and take on higher math and science courses in high school, finds a new federal analysis.

But there is scant research focusing on ways to encourage STEM engagement among Hispanic students specifically, finds the Regional Educational Laboratory Southwest. In fact, while the total number of STEM courses strongly predicted whether white students would go into a science or math field, it was less likely to predict the interest of other student groups, including Hispanic students.
