What STEM Education Means for Teachers
STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. To succeed in today's technology-driven world, students will need to receive a solid grounding in STEM subjects, beginning at the elementary school level. The overall purpose of STEM education is to integrate the specific topics of science, technology, engineering, and math into all subject areas and improve the quality of elementary education overall.
Through day-to-day learning that incorporates STEM subjects, teachers can inspire their students to become active and informed citizens in an ever-more complex world. The skills that students obtain from increased exposure to all elements of STEM education can be applied to any number of careers. Your students can rise to the challenges before them as critical thinkers and effective problem solvers.
