The comments from Mallory Hytes Hagan are from US News and World Report – an account of a panel discussion on STEM education they held last week
“I learned next to nothing in high school physics. Same thing in anatomy, same thing in chemistry,” Hagan said.
This disconnect made for an eye opening experience at Auburn University, where Hagan spent a year studying biomedical science. She later transferred to the Fashion Institute of Technology.
“I hit that first chem lab and thought, ‘Whoa, what’s going on?'” she said.
Ms. Hagan is a graduate of Opelika High School in Opelika, Alabama.
