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 (PreK-12).


STEM education engages students in asking questions and solve problems related to the world around them. 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.

STEM can include a variety of courses that combine subjects such as: computer science; robotics; sustainability and green construction; environmental studies; marine science; urban transportation; financial literacy; urban gardening and farming; communications; health and wellness; and so much more.
