STEM EDUCATION

As we know is everywhere in the world around us. Technology is developing very fast. Engineering also gives us a lot of things like basic designs for road and bridges. Mathematics is present in our day to day life so a new stream of education is formed to focus on these four important aspects of SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING, MATHEMATICS form called STEM. The United States has generally been a pioneer in these fields, Few students are focusing on these topics recently in America. The Obama Administration announced the campaign "Associate to Innovate" so that students can be motivated to achieve excellence in STEM subjects.
Everyone knows about MICHAEL JORDAN and his famous dunks. But do you know about the physics that make this possible? we all feel the impact of social media on our lives but do you know the technology that makes it possible? We all know about the robots portrayed in movies. But did you know that robots have become a reality? We all know about the famous Red Bull space jump has impacted the world. But none of it would be possible.


STEM Education

STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. STEM activities provide hand on and mind on lessons for the students. Making the students to do much more than just learn. Because we know that only learning can’t improve our activities but practically doing that work enhance our strength and brain work. This stream able the students to learn different subjects, not the ordinary one which we read for decades like social studies, Hindi, English, Math etc. It promotes higher order thinking and makes the students smart and brilliant so, STEM education is an removes an interdisciplinary approach to learning that removes traditional barrier separating the four disciplines of science, technology, and maths and integrates then into real-world, rigorous and relevant learning experiences for students.

STEM Goals

  1. It helps students to function and thrive in our highly technological world. This system develops the abilities that require a personal decision-making participation in civic and cultural affairs and economic productivity.
  2. It also helps in a connection between disciplines. It helps students in deepens conceptual understanding. The students automatically develop the skills and concepts all work together.
  3. It helps to develop high I.Q practicing on different tools and gadgets by students.
Why STEM is important?

Building the Ethnic and Gender Gap: - This education system breaks the traditional gender roles by in STEM-related fields.

Making a difference in the world: - STEM careers are truly helping professions that build communities and transform nations. They are working to find solutions for global warming cancer, third world hunger, disappearing habitats, and an interdependent world economy.

Job opportunities and strengthening the Economy: - With STEM education, students are encouraged to think deeply so that they have the chance to become the innovator, expert, scientists etc. who can solve the most pressing challenges facing our nation and our world.

Benefits of STEM Education

  1. STEM can help for the manufacturing sector, there is a serious shortage of employees with the necessary skills.
  2. It enhances the problem-solving skills of the students by analyzing. 
  3. It helps the student to understands the concepts more thoroughly.
  4. It promotes students to learn by application of knowledge.
  5. It completes process learning.
  6. It instills creativity and innovation to help students to see the problems in new ways.
How can STEM Education shape the future?

Our future will be all about technology, innovations, new ideas so it is important to have a very broad sense of what technology is in our everyday world. It is certainly digital computer-based technology but it’s technology related to construction, medicine, transportation and so many other fields that students need if they are going to be able to navigate this world’s complex society. If teachers really engage their students in inspecting activities that are rigorous, enjoyable and interesting then students are going to do better in these subjects. Also, parents can look for things for students to do during the summer after school or right at home. Parents can look around their own community and their family, maybe it is of STEM resources that many people don’t realize.

If we talk about Indian education systems we will see that our system give preference to the memorizing power of a child, not the learning abilities. Exam conduct on this basis only that how much our mind can memorize the thing. What you can memorize that is only your skill of mugging up nothing else. because we see this often that when we talk about entrance exams of science or engineering many students who only got 50-60 % marks in exams, they use to clear the entrance test brilliantly why? Because they understand the concept, they remind it by practice by doing it practically. It reminds me of the difference between a clever brain and a memorized brain.

We all know about the movie 3 idiots. We saw in that movie the what we can be by loving that subject and what we can be by mere memorized that subject. This is up to us what we want to become? In the STEM system, this enhances our ability to understand the topics by using different kinds of gadgets and tools. This is the need of this hour to change our traditional education by modern methods by STEM methods. 

We should support more and more of this kind of system in our countries. But till now only a few peoples know about it. We should aware of them by different programs. We should increase their interest in STEM education. Because truly this is the only future of our country. The STEM will create brilliant minds with extraordinary skills. In India, there is not at all a shortage of intelligence and talented people. But the need of this hour is to properly channelized that should take a step forward to accept a unique STEM system so we can make our country a different world and a country who everyone dreamt of.

  1. already learned to education, you’ll see an explosion of passion for subjects that
    perhaps that student hadn’t even thought of as interesting. Educatological
