What is STEM curriculum

STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines —

  • science
  • technology,
  • engineering
  • mathematics

In an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications.
