STEM is more than the sum of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math; it is an approach to learning that focuses on real-world problem-solving using an inquiry-based methodology. STEM problem-solving tools not only include science, technology, engineering, and math, but also soft skills such as multifaceted collaboration, creativity, coding, digital agility, media literacy, critical thinking, global citizenship, and dynamic communication. Whether you call it STEM, STEAM, STREAM or something else, this conversation is about the skills we need today and in the future to function effectively and thrive as workers, family members, and citizens.
