The YID is a taste of the inspirational, educational, learning/teaching method in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). The importance of engineering, sciences, and mathematics is undeniable.
In the 21st century, we are surrounded every day by a vast range of technological advancements. The pace and range of this new technology is changing the way we live our day-to-day lives. In this new age, technology ties STEM together: from your smartphone & website design, to sharing teaching materials & technical research, and even to the art we enjoy every day.
The opportunities for students who are STEM-proficient are endless. Connecting exciting career opportunities to math and science taught in the classroom is critical for encouraging and keeping children interested in pursuing STEM careers. Get informed. Get excited. Get started.
“It is not about the technology; it’s about sharing knowledge and information, communicating efficiently, building learning communities and creating a culture of professionalism in schools. These are the key responsibilities of all educational leaders.” – Marion Ginapolis
