Training teachers to make STEM inspirational

The foundation aims to do three broad things: improve subject and STEM knowledge; improve the overall quality of teaching; and support leadership development. It also allows educators to network with like-minded people and share ideas and good practices. Another reason of the foundation is the effect it has on a teacher’s confidence and enthusiasm in STEM programs they teach, in order to inspire young people.

STEM is the acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, and encompasses a vast array of subjects that fall into each of those terms. While it is almost impossible to list every discipline, some common STEM areas include: aerospace engineering, astrophysics, astronomy, biochemistry, biomechanics, chemical engineering, chemistry, civil engineering, computer science, mathematical biology, nanotechnology, neurobiology, nuclear physics, physics, and robotics, among many, many others. As evidenced by the multitude of disciplines, it’s clear that STEM fields affect virtually every component of our everyday lives.
