What is STEM Education?

STEM education integrates the study of science, technology, engineering and mathematics by using scientific inquiry and engineering design as unifying processes. STEM emphasizes innovation and the development of problem-solving, critical thinking, and collaboration skills. 

Why STEM Education?

Advances in science and engineering are essential for ensuring America's and Hawaii's economic growth and national security. During the next decade, U.S. demand for scientists and engineers is expected to increase at four times the rate of all other occupations. STEM is infused within every facet of our society and plays a major role in determining Hawaii' future viability. STEM education develops tomorrow's innovators who will overcome the unforeseen challenges in healthcare, public safety, the economy and the environment.

Goals of STEM Education in Hawaii's Public Schools

  • Transform and revitalize the teaching and learning of science and mathematics in grades K-12 by purposefully integrating science and mathematics with technology and engineering.
  • Proliferate the number of highly qualified and effective STEM teachers as well as the public school system's capacity to continuously support and develop them.
  • Expand STEM learning opportunities and performance expectations for all public school students.
  • Significantly increase the number of public school graduates, especially those from traditionally underrepresented groups, who attain college degrees in STEM fields or pursue STEM-related careers.
  • Cultivate partnerships with community and corporate partners to offer internships and other real-world learning experiences to public school students.
