Larry Bock ’81: “A National Challenge We Can’t Ignore” (Huffington Post)

Larry Bock, a member of the Bowdoin College Class of 1981, has long been concerned about the declining number of young Americans entering the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. That’s why he founded the USA Science & Engineering Festival, the nation’s largest celebration of science and engineering. Bowdoin was a partner in the inaugural event in 2010 that attracted over 500,000 people, including neuroscience students from Bowdoin and the College’s acclaimed robotics team, Northern Bites. On this New Year’s Day, Bock is asking Americans from across the country to make a resolution to participate in the 2012 event, scheduled for April.
