STEM/STEAM Education

STEM for Every D51 Learner

Every student in D51 needs to develop a set of workforce skills in order to become a successful problem solver in our society. All of our schools have the responsibility of engaging students in quality STEM education through regular and/or extracurricular programming. As STEM education teaches thinking and problem-solving skills that are applicable in all fields, a basic understanding of STEM is becoming a prerequisite for full participation in today’s society.
STEM Education Defined

STEM education provides a transdisciplinary approach to learning, where rigorous academic concepts are coupled with real-world applications and students use STEM in contexts that make connections between school, community, work, and the wider world. STEM education continues to broaden and deepen its scope and further transcend the fields of study beyond just a combination of the four disciplines, science, technology, engineering, and math, to include the arts and humanities. STEM education imparts not only skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving, higher-order thinking, design, and inference, but also behavioral competencies such as perseverance, adaptability, cooperation, organization, and responsibility. Adopted from the National Science and Technology Council, 2018
