Department Overview:

STEM is an acronym for science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The term is somewhat new, but the foundation of knowledge in the area is older. The STEM curriculum encompasses the desired learning that students will need to prepare them for their lives in a future that perhaps they don't quite understand themselves.

 

A primary objective of STEM is to integrate the teaching of the four composite areas so that students better understand the connections among the areas. Most students already understand this concept, but all students must understand it.
