Why teach STEM?

Every country in the world is reforming their education system at the current time. Why? Well, we are told it is because we are not preparing students with the skills and attributes they need for the future. Many jobs in the future will depend on students have a really good basis in STEM.

“Science and technology are at the heart of every major challenge we face: rebuilding transport systems in major town and cities, climate change, space exploration, creating a healthy economy. Yet every year the number of Graduates in STEM decreases in New Zealand” 

The plan, A Nation of Curious Minds – He Whenua Hihiri i te Mahara, recognizes the important role scientific knowledge and innovation play in our lives and in creating and defining New Zealand’s future, economically, socially and environmentally.”
