STEM education: Unlocking enormous opportunities for today’s generation

STEM-Education.jpg

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education signifies the curriculum based on these four disciplines. In the global education landscape, STEM-based learning is steadily gaining prevalence. Even in India, many schools have started considering this academic discipline while formulating curriculum of their K-12 segment, the reasons being developing students’ interest in technology-based learning and encouraging them to pursue it in higher education.

STEM education goes a long way in successfully integrating book-based knowledge with its real-life applications. Therefore, students get a better understanding of a subject, topic, or a concept and comprehend its real-life applications, which is quite impossible in traditional book-based rote learning.

Now, the obvious question is the career prospect in this field. As revealed by a Physics teacher in a Delhi-based school, since STEM field is on an expansion spree, job opportunity in this field is enormous. Nevertheless, STEM skill-equipped students need not be only scientists. Although research is a good career option for these students, they can also seek employment in many technical and semi-technical fields. There are even many career prospects for them in government sectors as well.

In our country, several initiatives are being taken at the both government and private levels to promote STEM education in schools. Many companies are coming up with innovative solutions to integrate STEM learning into all aspects of the teaching and learning process. It is ultimately enabling teachers to impart necessary life skills—such as problem solving, logical thinking, analyzing, etc.—into students so that they can be better equipped to face today’s competitive professional world.
