What is STEM?

STEM stands for science (biology, chemistry and physics), technologies (including digital and computing science), engineering (all types) and mathematics. It is one of the core drivers of our curriculum. 


As well as developing skills and knowledge in each individual subject, STEM education aims to develop children's ability to develop knowledge and skills through interdisciplinary or project-based learning. This approach reflects the way in which STEM skills and knowledge are used in the world of work where a team with different types of expertise would work together to generate new knowledge, ideas and products.
