What is STEM?

STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. STEM education is promotion of real-world experience, teamwork, and the authentic application of technology. Additionally, it also promotes discovery, problem based learning, and project-based learning. STEM is supported by the National Science Foundation and the U.S. Department of Education.
