If you are a parent, you have probably heard about STEM education. What is STEM? Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics....it is a multidisciplinary and integrated education approach that focuses on improving critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, and innovation. This means that education in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics is based on a solid foundation of knowledge and encourages that knowledge to be applied to hands-on projects.
Our world is ever moving foward. If education becomes stagnant, we will be left behind. As a nation, we should all be concerned with the education of our future generations. I encourage everyone to find out how much emphasis your school system places on STEM education. Get interested. Get out there. Get involved.
