Mayim Bialik is straightforward when she talks about science and math education.

In an exclusive interview with TakePart.com, The Big Bang Theory actress — and neuroscientist — speaks up about why the United States needs to make science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education a priority.

Bialik sees the importance of STEM education for all students, but especially for young girls who may think such “boy” subjects are not for them. "Math, science, engineering, and technology are for everyone, but there’s this general notion that these are boy fields and girls think, ‘I can’t do this,’ " she says.
