What is STEM?
STEM activities are made up of a combination of different subjects. STEM is an abbreviation for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Most STEM activities combine at least two of these subjects. Many combine three or even all four.
They’re fun and hands-on activities that promote learning by doing.
