What is Primary STEM?
Science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education is uniquely suited to prepare students for success. Employment in STEM occupations is projected to grow 8.8% by 2028 and is traditionally remunerated at a higher rate than non-STEM occupations.
The focus on logical thought processes and problem-solving allows students to develop mental habits that will help them succeed in any field.
STEM coursework challenges students to think critically and come up with their own solutions, whilst working together students are actively developing interpersonal and collaboration skills.
