What is STEM ?
is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. And, at its simplest, that’s what STEM programs provide: an intensive focus on the hard sciences.
programs achieve that, largely, through problem-based learning, with each of the elements providing tools for discovery, creative problem solving, and communication:
cience: questioning, observing, predicting
echnology: applying analytic tools, putting ideas into practice, being inventive
ngineering: building, understanding material properties, designing effective solutions
ath: identifying patterns, making connections, communicating results
