IMPORTANCE OF STEM OR STEAM EDUCATION

STEM or STEAM is an acronym and stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math. Instead of each subject being taught individually and separately at school or home, STEAM aims to fuse them together into a unified learning model, which is also based on real-life, practical applications.

The drive behind STEM is to get more engagement with these subjects, and make it relatable to the world around us. Parents and teachers should help students integrate knowledge across discipline and encourage them to think in a holistic way, when it comes to Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math.

STEAM comes from the growing need and a shortage of individuals and teachers who have expert skills in these fields. Due to this alarming problem in 2009, Obama’s administration decided to launch a nationwide “Educate to Innovate” campaign to encourage and motivate students to do exceptionally well in STEAM-related subjects. This challenge is not unique to USA only; other countries such as the UK and Germany also need to work on increasing their STEAM-skilled pool too.

Usually, STEM focuses on computational thinking, finding solutions and answers to real-life problems and often accentuates learning which is project based. STEM lessons tend to be exciting and interesting and will include making things and building models. It is important that parents and educators give children chances to tinker, invent and explore and participate in cross-contextual learning.
