STEM

STEM education involves integrating science, technology, engineering, and mathematics into the
learning experience to promote the 4 ‘Cs’: collaboration, critical thinking, creative problem
solving and communication.

Through STEM, students work together to develop their critical thinking skills by encouraging them
to ask questions and seek answers through investigation and experimentation. It promotes
problem-solving skills, as students are challenged to develop solutions to real-world problems.
Additionally, STEM education helps to foster creativity and innovation by encouraging children to
think outside the box and come up with new ideas.
