#ThisIsSTEM
We believe STEM is more than academic knowledge; it’s what happens during a project, a group discussion, a presentation, or an activity. It’s the challenges, failures, and a-ha moments. It’s the place where and the activity through which today’s students can develop and practice skills that will prepare them for success in a world they’ll live in that we can’t yet describe. Student success . . . #ThisIsSTEM
