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.
