STEM education creates critical thinkers, increases science literacy, and enables the next generation of scientists and researchers. Scientific endeavors lead to new discoveries and processes that improve our understanding of the universe.
Engineering draws on all of the STEM fields and applies them to solve problems and to create innovative devices, structures, and software applications.
Applying mathematics during engineering design challenges can help children develop critical thinking, problem solving, and communication skills. Challenging students with important mathematics prepares them to solve practical problems.
Preparing today’s children to become the innovators and inventors of tomorrow’s technologies begins with STEM programs. STEM provides opportunities to take traditional learning and pivot it to prioritize the hands-on experience and real-world application necessary for developing an innovative mind.
