    What is STEM?

    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 these four disciplines as separate subjects, STEM integrates them into cohesive learning based on real-world applications.
