STEM is everywhere
STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and math and it surrounds us in our daily life -- and even launch your career.
Almost everything about our world—all the things we do, touch and know—stems from science, technology, engineering or math (STEM). STEM helps us understand the world and gives us tools to improve our lives.
In the kitchen, for instance, you can use algebra to adjust a recipe. Chemistry can help you decide which ingredients to add. You can use geometry to set the table and biology to tell if the leftover pizza is bad. Your microwave has energy to cook your food, thanks to engineering and robotics. After dinner, you can use the latest technologies to play video games or text your friends. Even the music you strum on your guitar is based on math.
