Too often school is like looking through a window to the world with blinders on. STEM is about removing the blinders, and in fact opening that window and bringing school out of the classroom. The fastest-growing occupations in the world exist within the realm of science and engineering, yet many of the opportunities that the next generation will be presented with aren’t even discussed in our schools.  The study of science, technology, engineering and mathematics in a STEM context ensures the topics are addressed, the concepts are explored, and the next generation of minds are ignited to the possibilities.
