STEM EDUCATION is a movement in American Education to help teachers and their students understand how the academic disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics impact their world and prepare them for the workforce of tomorrow. In the STEM environment, there is less emphasis on activities that demonstrate science content and a greater focus on those activities that allow students to engage in real world problems and experiences through project based, experiential learning activities that lead to higher level thinking. Through the implementation of STEM education, and the best practices and strategies it promotes, teachers can construct a learning environment where students are given the opportunity to experience, talk, debate, discover, design, create, and build. They can learn to lead the way to innovation… learning today… making a better tomorrow.
