Support STEM Learning with PowerMyLearning Connect

What is STEM and why is it important?

STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.  It is an integrated and interdisciplinary approach that engages students through active learning and discovery, gathering and analysis of data and evidence, critical thinking, problem solving, communication, and collaboration. Students apply content learned to solve real-world problems, motivating and preparing them to successfully pursue college and careers in these growing fields, and to help solve many of the critical challenges of our time.
