What is STEM?
STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. These subjects are often taught separately, but are all interconnected just as reading, writing, and speaking are; understanding in each of the STEM fields deepens understanding in the others.
Science includes biology, chemistry, archaeology, physics, psychology, and any other subject which interprets the world through a logical lens.
Technology includes the use or investigation of any device used to make, learn, or do something.
Engineering, less taught in primary school but increasing in popularity, includes mechanical studies, chemical tinkering, aeronautics, or any other method by way innovation is tested systematically.
Mathematics is the way by which the world is studied through numbers and logic.
