STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. It has become an essential learning model in the 21st Century, designed to ready students for the evolving technological landscape of careers.
The building blocks of a successful STEM program are seeded in science and math. These subjects are the starting points for students as they develop communication and teamwork skills to apply across all types of assignments and projects. Science and math provide essential skills for students to prepare for the challenges and opportunities presented in technology and engineering studies.
The key to preparing students is in how you develop your STEM lessons. The emphasis should be on connecting and integrating content from math and science. Create lesson plans with objectives that integrate both subjects to help students understand the connections among STEM domains.
Science and math are subjects that speak to each other. STEM lessons provide a way for students to be a part of the conversation. STEM provides the proof that math and science concepts learned in school apply directly to the real world. This can inspire engagement and excitement as students develop the skills they need to succeed in the future.
Castle Learning’s math and science content is ideal for teachers looking to build up and supplement technology and engineering projects. Teachers can create assignments, pre-tests and assessments that focus on individual math and science skills and refine the students’ abilities as they work through a STEM program.
