Celebrating 243 Years of American Science & Innovation

Two hundred forty-three years ago, the United States first declared independence from Great Britain. Since then, the United States’s population grew from less than 3 million to well over 300 million and became one of the strong economies in the world. The U.S has grown in many other aspects, and today, we would like to acknowledge American scientists and innovators and their impact on the global market.   
The U.S is a global leader in medical innovation, research papers, patents, and the home of some of the leading universities in the world. In celebration of 243rd years of being at the forefront of scientific discovery, we gathered some stats and facts about American education and innovation.
