The Case for STEM
STEM is not just science or technology or math or engineering. It’s a truly integrated approach to learning.
Done right, STEM engages students and increases motivation with project-based learning, encourages students to solve authentic problems, and asks them to work with others to build real solutions.
Through project-based and authentic learning experiences, STEM encourages open-ended exploration, collaboration, problem-solving, decision-making, creativity and innovation.
These are not new skills. Producing students capable of innovative thinking and problem solving has always been important to teachers. What’s really different about STEM and why is it so important now?
As the world shrinks, competition becomes fiercer. Students need to do better to stay ahead.
Technology driven economy
Technology is creating opportunities, and new challenges, at a faster rate than ever before. 21st century skills are a prerequisite to entry and absolutely required for upward mobility.
Rapidly changing world
The top 10 in-demand jobs in the US in 2010 did not exist in 2004. Companies with multi-billion dollar valuations have appeared from nowhere and disappeared completely within the last ten years. Today’s students need to be adaptable and prepared.
College and Career Readiness
Students need technology and 21st century skills to further their educations and to prepare for jobs in this global, tech-based world. These include everything from word processing to spreadsheets and also include systems thinking, creativity, optimism, collaboration, communication and attention to ethical considerations. Developing these critical skills is essential for life and career in the 21st century.
Common Core Initiative and state standards
To meet these challenges, education itself is changing. Standards initiatives—including the Common Core State Standards, TEKS, NGSSS, and others—are calling for increasing rigor in education. STEM, with its emphasis on applying knowledge and 21st century skills, meets the challenge of these new rigorous standards.
Academic benefits and student performance
STEM and problem-based learning develop rigorous thinking habits and 21st century skills. STEM provides a meaningful context for learning scientific, mathematical and technological concepts. STEM increases engagement and motivation which leads to increased comprehension. STEM asks students to apply knowledge which provides them with the opportunity to demonstrate understanding and build procedural skill. STEM is proven to improve math and science outcomes and make a real difference for students.
