STEM is Everywhere

STEM is not only important in the work that we do, but it also has become a large part of our world.

Science

This includes the obvious subjects such as biology, chemistry and physics, but also includes subjects such as psychology, geology and astronomy. Science is vitally important in issues all around us, everywhere we look – from taking care of animals to conserving the planet’s resources, to coming up with new medical treatments for diseases and conditions.

Technology

This broad subject area includes topics such as computer science, software development, AI and programming. Technology has evolved into such a critical aspect of our day-to-day routines. We could not travel to many places without GPS technology, for example, or keep in touch with friends and loved ones without our smartphones.

Engineering 

This is not exhaustive but the four main areas of engineering are chemical, civil, mechanical, and electrical engineering. Engineering helps to keep our entire world together and functioning properly. The bridges and roads we travel every day, as well as the school buildings in which we spend our daytime hours, have been created by the talents and intelligence of engineers. The solar panels and other energy-saving modifications to our homes are also in place thanks to engineers.

Math

This area includes not only geometry, fractions, algebra and statistics, but math also encompasses subjects related to economics. Mathematics is involved in virtually every activity in which we participate. In cooking, for example, we must be able to measure and convert units so that we can create the perfect recipe. In building a house, we must be able to calculate areas and other measurements to construct buildings that will withstand nature’s forces.
