Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) - Overview
STEM - what is it?
Within the curriculum STEM activities explore the interdisciplinary connections between the contributing school subjects science, design & technology and mathematics with special reference to those sorts of activities that might be termed engineering or have a strong engineering component.
Engineering is a very broad area of professional activity, hence the definition from the Royal Academy of Engineering as the knowledge required, and the process applied, to conceive, design, make, build, operate, sustain, recycle or retire, something of significant technical content for a specified purpose; a concept, a model, a product, a device, a process, a system, a technology.
So plenty of opportunities there!
Developing STEM activities for pupils will be both professionally rewarding and personally exhilarating.
