What is STEM?

STEM is an abbreviation for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Students can learn about STEM both inside and outside the classroom at all grade levels (Pre-kindergarten–12). STEM can also incorporate the arts--then it becomes STEAM. History and literacy may also be included.

STEM education gets students to ask questions and solve problems that relate to the world they live in. Using the engineering-design process, students identify problems, design possible solutions, and test and evaluate those solutions. This process, combined with the study of math and science, helps students to find connections that make science, math and technology relevant to their lives and engaging for them.

STEM can include a variety of courses that combine subjects such as:

  • computer science

  • robotics

  • sustainability

  • environmental studies

  • marine science

  • urban transportation

  • financial literacy

  • urban gardening and farming

  • communications

  • green construction

  • facility maintenance

  • health and wellness
