What is STEM?

STEM (an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education has been the subject of refocus since U.S. government experts identified alarming inadequacies in the preparation of America's students for the global workforce of the future. In response to this crisis, school systems across the U.S. have been enhancing their K-12 STEM curriculum and increasing their efforts to reach all students, including underserved populations. Efforts also include offering more extra-curricular activities to students that are designed to stimulate interest in STEM careers, and providing additional training and professional development in these disciplines to educators.
