Nature Publishing Group (NPG) has joined Change the Equation (CTEq), a CEO-led initiative to cultivate widespread literacy in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) in the USA. NPG is committing a three-year “Bridge to Science” initiative in support of CTEq’s goals. The programmes within Bridge to Science aim to build stronger connections between parents, students and scientists, and help to inspire people at large to embrace science as part of their daily lives.

Change the Equation is bringing together companies across multiple sectors, all dedicated to preparing students for STEM-related careers as an investment in their businesses, the economy and public life.

'Our success as a nation depends on strengthening America's role as the world's engine of discovery and innovation," said President Obama. "I applaud Nature Publishing Group and its partners for lending their resources, expertise, and their enthusiasm to the task of strengthening America's leadership in the 21st century by improving education in science, technology, engineering and math.'
