What is STEM? Science, Technology, Engineering, Math

Provo City School District’s statement on STEM

STEM education is a focus on content knowledge in science, technology, math, and engineering. STEM educators teach complimentary skills that help students use their knowledge to solve problems. They include:

  • 21st Century Skills: communication, collaboration, creative problem solving, and critical thinking
  • Engineering Design Processes: In addition to the scientific method, the EDP is taught to students. It is a series of steps used to design solutions to problems. It includes defining the problem, research, developing and testing prototypes, and communicating results.
