Overview of STEM

Seton Catholic School is a nationally recognized school where students have a tradition of excelling in Reading and Math. In 2013, we introduced our new STEM program featuring classrooms emphasizing integrated instruction in Science, Technology, Engineering & Math.

What is STEM?

At its surface, STEM education, is an integrated approach of teaching and learning in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math. Through STEM students are actively engaged with the content and materials. At its core, STEM is about moving forward, solving problems, learning, and pushing innovation to the next level.

Why STEM?

STEM education creates critical thinkers, increases science literacy, and enables the next generation of innovators. Innovation leads to new products and processes that sustain our economy. This innovation and science literacy depends on a solid knowledge base in the STEM areas. It is clear that most jobs of the future will require a basic understanding of math and science— 10-year employment projections by the U.S. Department of Labor show that of the 20 fastest growing occupations projected for 2014, 15 of them require significant mathematics or science preparation. It is imperative that as a nation, we make STEM education a top priority. Seton Catholic School is ready for the task!
