What is STEM?

STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating children in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — in a mixed and applied approach. Rather than teach the four subjects separately, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications.

Blended learning

What separates STEM from the traditional science and math education is the blended learning environment and showing children how the scientific method can be applied to everyday life. It teaches them computational thinking and focuses on the real world applications of problem solving. STEM education begins while children are very young.

  • Primary school — STEM education focuses on the introductory level STEM courses, as well as awareness of the STEM fields and occupations. This initial step provides the development of structured inquiry-based and real world problem-based learning, connecting all four of the STEM subjects. The goal is to spark children's interest into them wanting to complete the courses, not because they have to.
