1. STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math education. We focus on these areas together, not only because the skills and knowledge in each discipline are essential for student success, but also because these fields are deeply intertwined in the real world and in how students learn most effectively.
    2. A strong focus on the application of STEM content is observed through discovery-based learning, through problem identification, brainstorming, research, testing, analyzing results, and redesigning.
