What is STeM Education?

Educational Philosophy 

STEM education is an interdisciplinary approach to learning where rigorous academic concepts are coupled with real-world lessons as students apply science, technology, (engineering,) and mathematics in contexts that make connections between school, community, work, and the global enterprise enabling the development of STEM literacy and with it the ability to compete in the new economy. (Tsupros, 2009)

There is a need for the Robert Frost STeM (Science, Technology, and Math) Magnet because we are living in an increasingly technologically global society where students need to be proficient and/or have an awareness of how Science, Technology, and Math are integrated into the structure of society. The educational needs that will be met will enhance learning and allow students to incorporate critical thinking along with creativity to develop lifelong learners who can solve real-life problems, because of their experiences within the classroom that reaches beyond and into the world.

STEM education:

  • Introduces an interdisciplinary program of study consisting of rigorous and challenging courses.
  • Continues to provide standards-based, structured inquiry-based and real world problem-based learning that interconnects STEM-related subjects.
  • Bridges and connects in-school and out-of-school learning opportunities.
  • Increases student awareness of STEM fields and occupations, especially for underrepresented populations.
  • Increases student awareness of the academic requirements of STEM fields and occupations.
  • Begins student exploration of STEM related careers, especially for underrepresented populations.
