STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
STEM Learning throughout the UK and Ireland is becoming more and more popular and having a bigger impact of school leavers. The aim of this course is to introduce you to ways in which we can support educators to understand STEM education in a more practical context.
This is the first in a series of courses which will provide you with creative ideas and activities for you to bring to life using the technology you have in your classroom such as the ActivPanel Elements Series, ActivConnect OPS-G or ActivConnect G Series.
STEM is important because it is present in every part of our lives. Science is everywhere in the world around us. Technology is continuously expanding into every aspect of our lives. Engineering is the basic designs of roads and bridges, but also tackles the challenges of changing global weather and environmentally-friendly changes to our home. Mathematics is in every occupation as well as every activity we do in our lives.
