Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math
STEM is not a new concept. Human beings have always been scientists, observing the world around us to draw conclusions. the word technology often makes people think of the latest technological advancements, but humans have been using technology since our earliest days on the planet, converting natural resources like stone into simple tools. Time passed an technology improved thanks to the work of engineers that developed new and more efficient ways to do tasks. Math has been around forever, too, with numbers tallies having been found on prehistoric bone.
Over the last several years, educators have used STEM as a focus for curriculum development in an effort to better prepare today's students for tomorrow's jobs. STEM is more than a series of interconnected disciplines, through STEM helps make the modern world possible! Science provides us with a lens to view the world and a method for testing our observations. Technology gives us capabilities beyond our natural limits. Engineering
