What is STEM?

STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math education. STEM  education is an interdisciplinary and applied approach that is coupled with hands-on, problem-based learning.

What is Work-Based Learning?

Work-based learning links education with the professional workplace. It uses the workplace, or in-depth experience that includes employer or community input, to engage students and promote learning and access to future educational and career opportunities.
