Importance of STEM Education in Elementary School

As a nation, our education industry has recognized a shortcoming in our students. We've fallen behind other industrialized countries in terms of STEM-related fields, which include Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Not only does a STEM-focused education open students to new subjects, it also allows for different learning methodologies to be utilized. Creativity in class structure promotes innovative thinking in your students. When you put a spotlight on project-based learning - which is common in STEM - you provide opportunities for authentic growth and development.
