STEM Education, at its core, simply means educating students in four specific disciplines, namely, Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (collectively shortened as STEM).
STEM education centers on creating a student-centered learning environment in which students investigate and engineer solutions to problems, and construct evidence-based explanations of real-world phenomena with a focus on a student’s social, emotional, physical, and academic needs through shared contributions of schools, families, and community partners.
STEAM education is crucial to meet the needs of a changing world. It teaches students computational thinking and focuses on the real-world applications of problem-solving. Students get to apply the various domains of STEM in a context that helps them realize a connection between the classroom and the world around them.
