What do you believe about Elementary STEM: I believe elementary STEM is a great tool to engage children in content and the world around them. STEM is everywhere and naturally lends itself to authentic problem posing. When children engage in these authentic problems and challenges, they not only use subject matter knowledge, but they see where these subjects are used in the real world. By making the content applicable to children’s lives, they not only have the opportunity to deepen their knowledge, but also see how they fit as active participants in the STEM community.
