“In the 21st century, scientific and technological innovations have become increasingly important as we face the benefits and challenges of both globalization and a knowledge-based economy. To succeed in this new information-based and highly technological society, students need to develop their capabilities in STEM to levels much beyond what was considered acceptable in the past.” (National Science Foundation)
STEM is an education curriculum encompassing Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. The STEM definition of Science is the study of the natural world. Technology includes any product made by humans to meet a want or need. Computers are technology, just as much as a chain link fence, or even a pencil. Any product created to solve a problem can be regarded as technology. Engineering is the design process students use to solve problems. Math is the language of numbers, shapes, and quantities.
