STEM is becoming an increasingly dominant field in academic and professional contexts. And, contrary to what many believe, STEM Education does not simply refer to coding and science. Rather, it is the system of education that lays the foundations for manufacturing, food production, health care and so many more of the world’s driving forces.
STEM education embraces modern styles of teaching. It adopts interdisciplinary and hands-on approaches from areas in the sciences, mathematics and technology combined with real-life experiences to tackle pressing, concrete issues that confront the global community. In today’s information-based and highly technological society, the youth need to develop their capabilities in STEM to be successful.
