What are some qualities that make up a good STEM program?

1.    Learning should be project-based, and usually conducted in groups.
2.    Ditch the bubble test. Students should be asked to produce something.
3.    Students should be encouraged to fail and fail often and should not be penalized for doing so.
4.    Students should have to call on a variety of skills from all content areas to fulfill the project.
5.    Soft skills, like teamwork and problem solving, are just as important as knowing how to solve an algebra equation and other content knowledge.
6.    Schools or classrooms should have “industry partners,” individuals from tech or engineering companies who can lend expertise in the classroom.
7.    Students should have access to after-school clubs, associations and contests.

Does an Engineering Design Process drive student to thinking and decision-making as they work on the real-world challenge?

    Engineering is the driving force behind STEM challenges and provides an organized process that can guide students in thinking through and solving problems.

Why has STEM become such a buzzword in education?

    STEM is attractive for a number of reasons. One reason is because schools have a responsibility to prepare students for a new digital economy, and that project-based learning inherent to STEM keeps students engaged.
    With the world becoming more technologically involved; you STEM training to gain a lucrative internship if not career.
    STEM, done correctly, fits with this national movement  and students seem to be responding. Ask any STEM teacher, and they’ll tell you their classroom is more alive than ever with students who are engaged with their work. Students, for the first time in a long time, see the connection between what they’re learning and their future lives, educators say.
