STEM @ SCHOOL
STEM is an abbreviation that stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. STEM is an interdisciplinary approach to learning where academic concepts are coupled with real-world lessons. Students apply science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in contexts that make connections between the classroom and the world around them. The perfect lesson includes also Art (STEAM).
The importance of STEM education is emphasized by the Next Generation Science Standards, which were designed to improve how students comprehend and apply science. STEM education typically focuses on project-based learning in the classroom. The projects and activities incorporate technology to emphasize the application of science and prepare students for future classes.
STEM education and the application of technology empowers every student to use their creativity and develop their critical thinking skills. The benefits of STEM education are also far-reaching for students of all ages and backgrounds as recent years have seen initiatives intended to add more females and minorities to STEM fields. Students can experience STEM education benefits, such as the ability to complete long, intricate tasks involving robotics or computer programming projects.
Through STEM, students develop key skills including: problem solving, creativity, critical analysis, teamwork, independent thinking, initiative, communication, digital literacy.
