What is STEM?

S - Science
T - Technology
E - Engineering

STEM is a term that has become increasingly popular in education when referring to this group of topics (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics). A solid STEM foundation is not only a foot in the door of the world’s fastest growing job market, but has become crucial for the future success of all students.
