The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that the Hispanic population in the U.S. will reach 132.8 million (or 30 percent of the total U.S. population) by the year 2050.   But Latino students, along with other minorities, continue to be underrepresented in the STEM disciplines and to receive STEM degrees at a lower rate than their White counterparts. Latino students are more likely than Whites to be exposed to funding inequities and to have science teachers who did not major in science.
