What is S.T.E.M?
Eighty percent of the nation's fastest-growing careers require skills from one or more STEM fields. In fact, science and engineering job opportunities are expected to grow at double the rate of jobs in other industries. Our nation's global competitiveness hinges on our ability to create the first fully STEM-literate generation and empower students with the confidence they need to pursue career opportunities that may have once seemed out-of-reach.
STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications.
