What is STEM?
The term STEM stands for the disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. STEM education, then, is the learning of these STEM subjects through an integrated approach; one that offers hands-on and relevant learning experiences.
Why STEM education is so important today?
It is recognised that there is an international shortage of educated and qualified workers in the STEM fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. With current worldwide technological changes, these fields have also been predicted as growth areas in the job markets of the future.
Development of scientific interest in your child requires a nurturing environment, exposure to scientific and technological ideas and concepts, plus an awareness of current and future global concerns.
New technological developments including those in AI, artificial intelligence, and global climate change pose a challenge to traditional careers and mean a shift in future career demands as well as the skills required to meet those changes. These new careers will include development of a new set of problem-solving skills.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labour Statistics, The Smithsonian, European, and UK Government reports
- Ninety-three out of 100 STEM occupations had wages above the national average.
- STEM occupations had above-average growth.
- STEM occupations had high educational requirements.
- Science, research, engineering and technology jobs are expected to grow at double the rate of other occupations.
- Females are under-represented in STEM careers (UK House of Commons Report).
How STEM education can change your child’s life?
- Evoking curiosity and enthusiasm for all disciplines of learning
- Encouraging children to problem solve using multidisciplinary skills.
- Increasing confidence.
- Encouraging problem-solving skills
- Raising exam performance
- Empowering them to be prepared for the careers of tomorrow.
