The development of STEM proficient students begins in primary schools where students apply the rigor of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics content and the STEM Standards of Practice while engaged in learning activities that investigate the natural world.

STEM is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking. Students can begin or build on their STEM interests by engaging in hands-on projects. It’s these skills that kids must adopt in order to stay relevant in today’s tech-centric world.
