The STEM Buzz STEM is a big buzzword in education and in the workforce these days, even though many people still don’t know what it means. An acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, the term STEM encompasses more than just algebra, physics, and computer programming. It’s about synergy — a focus on how our world operates and the relationships between all of these seemingly independent disciplines. They are, after all, related. But what’s behind the recent focus on STEM coursework and professions? Read on to find out!
The robotics camp was a HUGE hit with our nearly 8-year old daughter. She was so excited to bring home her own creation each day and to tell us what she learned about electricity. I was impressed with the creativity and physics involved in getting the robots to move 'just so.' I was very happy to find this robotics camp for the younger age to capitalize on her love of science that is just blooming. The location was convenient with easy, safe access. There were a fair number of girls enrolled as well which is becoming more important as she gets older. Thanks so much! We will look to do this one again. Janet Portland, ME
