In recent years, STEM education has become a top priority in the USA and other countries. STEM education can be understood as an inter-subject approach in learning and teaching, equipping students with knowledge and skillsets relevant to the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. STEM education does not focus solely on the delivery of knowledge but also extends to the development of practice and solutions to real-world problems through a scientific mindset.
STEM education should not be understood as specialized programs to specifically train mathematicians, scientists or engineers. STEM education, at its core, aims to inspire joy in learning through inquiry, exploration, and experimentation. Its projects and topical problems are designed to encourage active learning through the process of practice and creation. Throughout this journey, students are exposed to meaningful and systematic connections, cross-cutting concepts between different subjects and how they are relevant to our lives. STEM education truly challenges the students to overcome their own limitations and become confident global citizens.
