STEM, a new education policy, stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics and is a generic term used to group these multiple disciplines.
STEM uses an interactive curriculum for students to motivate them to learn diverse topics. By learning content from multiple disciplines, students will be able to handle real-world applications.
