    LSAY is a three-cohort two-generation longitudinal study of national samples of public school students in the US. Originally it studied the factors related to student interest in STEM, the development of skills in those disciplines, the selection of careers, and the development of sufficient scientific literacy to perform citizenship responsibilities in a democratic society. The study was renewed in 2015 with Cohort 3.
