What is STEM?
STEM is much more than an acronym. STEM really is a philosophy. STEM is a way of thinking about how educators at all levels—including parents—should be helping students integrate knowledge across disciplines, encouraging them to think in a more connected and holistic way when it comes to science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
At Steve Spangler Science, we believe STEM is all about growing new scientists and engineers, and we will go to almost any extreme to get children excited about science. If you look at the large corporations and national organization who are contributing significant funding to STEM initiatives, they all share a common goal… to prepare an emerging workforce for STEM-based careers.
