If you're running into personal experiences that slant you to an
opinion, that's just a small-percentage coincidence.
I think many college students that have a technical aptitude often go
into engineering due to the higher financial rewards.
The current crash of the economy for the past several years may have
made it near-impossible for some people to undertake a vocation in the
sciences - please take that into consideration.
I would also think the problems of getting good teachers and retaining
them may also keep alot of children from otherwise developing an
interest at the grade-school level that they deserve - again, that's
an economic issue.
My experience with kids and young adults shows a keen interest in the
sciences - especially towards zoology, recently.
