Have you ever wondered why kids in countries like USA, UK, China, Russia etc. are outstandingly creative, innovative and excellent in science & tech? One of the major reason is because they are introduced to STEM Education at a very early stage of their life.
So, what is STEM?
STEM is the acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. STEM encompasses a vast array of subjects that fall into each of those terms. While it is almost impossible to list every discipline, some common STEM areas include: Aerospace Engineering, Astrophysics, Astronomy, Biochemistry, Biomechanics, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Civil Engineering, Computer Science, Mathematical Biology, Nanotechnology, Neurobiology, Nuclear Physics, Physics, and Robotics, among others. As shown by the multitude of disciplines, it is clear that STEM fields affect virtually every component of our everyday lives.
Today’s students are tomorrow’s leaders. Occupations in STEM-related careers are some of the fastest growing and best paid of the 21st century, and they often have the greatest potential for job growth.
