What is STEM?
STEM education is active and focuses on a student-centered learning environment. Students engage in questioning, problem solving, collaboration, and hands-on activities while they address real life issues. In STEM education, teachers function as classroom facilitators. They guide students through the problem-solving process and plan projects that lead to mastery of content and STEM proficiency. STEM proficient students are able to answer complex questions, investigate global issues, and develop solutions for challenges and real world problems while applying the rigor of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics content in a seamless fashion. STEM proficient students are logical thinkers, effective communicators and are technologically, scientifically, and mathematically literate 
 
Why is STEM important for our students?
It is likely that every job in the 21st Century will require some skill in science, technology, engineering and math. The integration of engineering and technology into the mathematics and science curriculum will make instruction more significant and appealing.  It will also provide students with  the skills that are essential to success in the 21st Century.  STEM is a very important role in promoting our students to be ready for college, career and life.  We are teaching students that will compete with the world for careers.  Let's make sure they are ready for the 21st Century!
