2. STEM education is an ongoing, long-term effort to teach students to think critically and solve problems.
It is not something you do for 30 minutes every Tuesday. True STEM education develops over time, teaching students to think, helping them see the real-world value of the content they’re learning, and using student-centered approaches to make learning meaningful and engaging. When done well, an emphasis on STEM will ignite a sense of wonder and curiosity in your students.
