Shifting the Mindset of STEM Learning

Breaking the Rules: Shifting the Mindset of STEM Learning to an Innovative Experience that Sparks and Sticks.

We are moving from an information age to an innovation age. The complex challenges our students face upon graduation must be addressed through an integrated understanding of the technical, economic, and social context in which the issues reside.

One of the ways we can prepare our high school graduates for the challenges and opportunities ahead is to improve and expand the teaching of STEM [Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics] disciplines. Leaders in business, economics, and education have started to focus on the threads that these disciplines have in common.
