STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines - science, technology, engineering and mathematics - in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning class based on real-world applications. It’s a growing movement in education around the world. STEM-based learning programs are intended to increase students' interest in pursuing higher education and careers in those fields.
