The Importance of STEM Education

At the 2014 White House Science Fair, held May 27, new steps to support science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education were announced as part of the president's Educate to Innovate campaign.

The Academies have produced dozens of expert reports on this topic, including a recent report that focused on integrating STEM disciplines in K-12 education and what would most likely lead to positive learning outcomes. Also important, STEM learning outside the classroom in informal and after-school settings is the subject of a June 3-4 workshop.
