This is STEM – Science, Technology, Engineering & Math
The 2009 “Educate to Innovate” campaign was designed by the Obama administration to motivate and inspire students to excel in STEM subjects. The goal is to get American students from the middle of the pack in science and math to the top of the pack in the international arena. STEM education includes four specific disciplines—science, technology, engineering, and mathematics—in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. STEM teaches and trains students to engage in critical thinking, inquiry, problem solving, collaboration, and what is often referred to in engineering as design thinking. These stand out as skills that all students will need to be successful in college, career, and life. As a core requirement for careers in some of the fastest-growing industries, STEM is closely linked with our nation’s economic strength in the global economy. Scientists, technologists, engineers, and mathematicians are largely responsible for creating the products, systems, and services that support our health, security, economic prosperity, and quality of life.
