About STEM

STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

It is a concept based on the idea of educating students in the four basic disciplines that are needed to understand, solve complex problems or compete on a global stage. STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications allowing for deeper and more meaningful student learning.

Opportunity to learn engineering principles and reasoning skills help students build skills that can be applied in a variety of situations leading to student innovation and original design.
