 STEM Education 


What is STEM education?

 The idea of educating students in four different specific disciplines - Science, Technology, Engineering
 and Mathematics in applied approach known as STEM Education

The four disciplines are separate and discrete subjects STEM integrate them into a learning experience
 based on a real world application.

A lesson or unit in a STEM class is typically based around finding a solution to a real world problems,
 tends to emphasize project based learning a variation of STEM is STEAM which includes an 'A' for art and design.

 Artistic design is becoming an important part of STEM education since creativity is an essential part of
 innovation. In contemporary world it is very useful and important


IMPORTANCE OF STEM EDUCATION - 

STEM is important because our world depends on it, our GDP to our general wellbeing, everything 
depends on it, because it's all backed by science, technology, engineering and mathematics. 

According to the US department of commerce, STEM occupations are growing at a rate of 17%, while 
other occupations are growing at a rate of 9.8% and STEM degrees holders have higher income even in 
non STEM careers. 

It is believed not only in the US but also in the WORLD that STEM employees play an important and

 at countries like Japan and Singapore with strong STEM education, we can see the advancement they 
are making an hopefully it inspires us to help our students to create something useful too.
