What is STEM
STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications.
Through STEM, students develop key skills including:
- problem solving
- critical analysis
- independent thinking
- digital literacy.
At Inverclyde Academy we have a wide variety of STEM activities on offer to support learners at ALL levels.
