Chalk Talk: What Is STEM Learning?
Science, Technology, Engineering and Math are four areas of study that naturally work together, as scientists use the language of math, computers, and technical instruments to guide their inquiries. Students follow a sequence of reasoning to make sense of the world as they form and test hypotheses. It is important for students to ground their observations within a framework that takes into account existing laws, theories, and strategies within the scientific method; and then refine what they discover.
