STEM Definition

"An interdisciplinary approach to learning where rigorous academic concepts are coupled with real-world lessons as students apply science, technology, engineering and mathematics in context that make connections between school, community, work, and the global enterprise, enabling the development of STEM literacy and with it the ability to compete in the new economy."

  -- Tsupros, Kohler, & Hallinen, 2009

Note: The Office of Standards and Instructional Supports (SIS) interprets "real world lessons" as stated in the above definition to mean authentic, student centered learning experiences.
