Why is STEM important? "STEM education goes beyond school subjects. It gives a skill set that governs the way we think and behave. Merging science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, STEM education helps us to solve the challenges the world faces today." (Study in the USA, 2021) We know STEM is important, but it can be challenging to find accessible resources.
