Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM)


White House Releases STEM Education Strategy which focuses on maintaining the nation’s STEM leadership and emphasizes inclusion, diversity, and workforce development.

What is a STEM School is a resource for identifying and measuring STEM schools and programs.

STEM Education is:

"An interdisciplinary approach to learning where rigorous academic concepts are coupled with real-world lessons as students apply science, technology, engineering and mathematics in context that make connections between school, community, work, and the global enterprise, enabling the development of STEM literacy and with it the ability to compete in the new economy."
-- Tsupros, Kohler, & Hallinen, 2009
