stem-web

There is broad support for updating K-12 Science and Math education to effectively incorporate Engineering and Technology (STEM). Despite this, many questions persist: what exactly is STEM? How is it different from the status quo? How can STEM be integrated in K-12 education? These are some of the questions that David Benedetto from the NH Department of Education will explore at the Faire. Stop by and consider the connections between the Maker movement and the STEM education movement.
