This is your brain on STEM

STEM refers to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics and aims to remedy the lagging proficiency of US students in comparison to their industrialized global counterparts. While interpretations vary, most agree that STEM is about innovation, learning about the world, technical literacy, and problem solving. Ultimately, STEM is pushing limits, moving forward, and finding better ways to do things. STEM education is simply providing students and teachers with a stronger grasp of science, technology, engineering, and math through hands-on learning that draws meaningful connections with real-world applications. HST provides many products that integrate two or more STEM disciplines, thereby helping to improve STEM literacy, inspire an interest in STEM careers, and equip today’s students with the skills they need to be competitive and competent tomorrow.
