Freeman A. Hrabowski on Changing the Face of Math and Science

If you didn't graduate with a degree in mathematics or science, it's possible you simply didn't consider yourself a "numbers person." Freeman A. Hrabowski, president of University of Maryland, Baltimore County, argues against this type of thinking. In this lecture, Hrabowski stresses the importance of keeping an open mind to education in all subjects, not just the ones that come naturally. Solving these problems, he says, can propel the U.S. forward in the fields of technology and scientific progress.
