Why Elementary Needs STEM Integration
As educators we know that incorporating STEM into our elementary classrooms has benefits that reach far beyond just science and mathematics. When we provide our classroom with hands-on STEM activities, students are not only learning about science, technology, engineering, and math; they are learning many important skills that will continue to benefit them in all aspects of their lives.
