STEM and Robotics Resources

I think it’s wonderful that schools have started to incorporate STEM and Robotics curriculum into their lessons. Do you know what STEM stands for? STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and math. (What Does STEM Stand for?)

 

More and more I am seeing STEM classes and STEM fairs, as well as Robotics competitions. I think it’s wonderful and is preparing children for a future filled with technology. If you are interested in learning more about STEM or Robotics, check out these websites:
