Discover everything you can accomplish with STEM
The term STEM is the acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. The concept of “STEM Education” has been developed as a new way to jointly teach all areas. A STEM-based education is important for all children and young people because it forms the basis for the development of the skills needed to achieve a successful professional career no matter what profession they choose.
This acronym does not only represent four subjects but a teaching method for the construction of knowledge and the development of necessary skills to apply in different scenarios and life situations.
A STEM learning has two distinct characteristics:
- Teaching-learning of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics in an integrated way instead of as compartmentalized knowledge areas. Integrated instruction is any program in which there is an explicit assimilation of concepts from two or more disciplines.
- An Engineering focus in the development of theoretical knowledge for its subsequent practical application always focused on problem-solving.
