It stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math. This I know. Just wondering if you have it and practice it in your school and how do you "do" it.
That's a very vague question as I understand in my particular situation. We have STEM (we don't add the A for whatever reason) classes like science and math. We have STEM clubs like robotics.
We're introducing new STEM standards with the oncoming of the NGSS. It's more just like a term we use to describe other things, rather than a thing in itself.
Within my science class we not only include the learning of scientific concepts, but we also use technology frequently, we do engineering projects to teach concepts, and we also do a lot of math, but that's the way my course is designed and was always designed. It's how the textbook was designed. I can't imagine doing science without those things because it's part of our standards as well.
