What is STEM?
STEM education is an integrated, interdisciplinary approach to teaching Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics that engages students in critical thinking, problem solving, innovation, and collaboration around authentic challenges faced in our everyday lives. In STEM, learning goes beyond merely transferring knowledge by allowing students to apply learning through hands-on, relevant projects. As a result, students who participate in Edmonds School District STEM classrooms and co-curricular STEM opportunities deepen their understanding and interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics to levels foundational for success in college and high demand, high wage STEM careers.
