STEM Instruction

Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) help build the foundation for student learning.

More than simply learning each of its lettered subjects, STEM instruction helps students develop critical thinking skills and student-centered learning experiences.

Understanding STEM concepts can be one of the biggest indicators of student success in the classroom and after school. Students with disabilities may often struggle with STEM learning due to the abstractness of the concepts, complexity of the vocabulary, and often limited supports from general education teachers in these subjects.
