What is STEM?

STEM is the acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. STEM education covers both the practical and philosophical demands of the modern era in these areas. Individual study of Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Mathematics provide the students with qualitative and quantitative insight into the universe in their character and methodology. However, STEM opens up a new horizon of exciting overlaps in these areas, which results in innovation and subsequently improves the quality of life around the globe. Besides, STEM education promotes inquiry-based learning methodology by nurturing the natural aptitude and curiosity of the students in a dynamic, open-ended, yet safe environment.

The four disciplines are combined into a single learning paradigm centered on practical applications instead of being taught as discrete, independent subjects.

Why stem?

According to educational studies, teachers find it challenging to draw linkages between the STEM fields. Therefore, students frequently lose interest in science and math when they learn in an isolated and disjointed manner, missing links to cross-cutting topics and real-world applications.
