What is STEM?
STEM is an acronym for science, technology, engineering, and math, but it is more than a focus on these subject areas. STEM education integrates these subjects in ways that develop 21st-century skills by encouraging learning through hands-on problem solving, creativity, inquiry skills, critical thinking and collaboration.
