Why a STEM education?
The word STEM is an acronym for science, technology, engineering and mathematics. STEM subjects are important as not only do they pervade every part of our lives but is also a hugely exciting area, offering the chance for individuals to continue changing and developing the world we live in. At it’s very core, a STEM education is about a young individuals ability to make a meaningful connection between school, community and global issues.
- Science is everywhere. Studying science provides a better understanding of the world around us and continues to help shape the modern world we live in
- Technology is continuously expanding into every aspect of our lives. It makes the world run efficiently and serves a variety of purposes to different people
- Engineering covers a wide range of disciplines and helps to find solutions for everyday problems. As the world continues to change, engineers are usually found at the forefront of much of these developments
- Mathematics is used on a daily basis, far more often then you may realise! Maths helps us to think analytically and have better reasoning abilities
