Why is STEM important?
STEM offers more work prospects for students, a better quality of education, and a capable and competent skilled workforce for the future. As our world becomes more focused on science and technology, it is important to be prepared to keep up with the demands while ensuring your employment opportunities.
Without STEM, companies and organizations within the United States and other countries would not be able to find the workers they need to fill vital rolls needed to keep up with progress.

What They Say
I am a strong proponent of STEM/STEAM education for many reasons. One being I am a maker, I like to make things, a paper plane, lego building, logo bot etc. This keeps me occupied and not get involved with “jackass” stuff. This making stuff keeps my mind active, improves critical thinking etc.
The focus of FIRST is STEM, and there’s nothing wrong with that. However the program encompasses other types of interests, and the problem starts when we start to invalidate those other fields.
As someone with a “STEM” degree working as a “STEM Professional” I so much like it.
STEAM gets us closer, but I don’t think it really does justice to just how important communication is. I like METALS, it covers things that are important.
