Students also learn how physical activity contributes to their overall social, emotional and intellectual fitness. Middle school students learn about the importance of maintaining an exercise regimen and discover the characteristics of a healthy diet. Once in high school, students look at how genetics and gender influence their health and fitness.

Chalk Talk: The Importance of STEM Education
As our world continues to become increasingly technological, the importance of STEM education – science, technology, engineering and math – becomes more and more vital. With competition from highly-qualified workers from across the world, American workers have to keep pace with the times and develop the skills necessary to be successful in the 21st Century workplace. STEM programs in public schools are the first step in keeping the American workforce on the cutting edge. STEM programs foster the development of critical thinking and problem solving skills. Students who take STEM courses become self-reliant, logical thinkers who are socially and culturally literate and technologically savvy. These skills, along with the subject and content related knowledge students gain in STEM courses, make them ready for the highly competitive workforce of the 21st Century.
