What is STEM learning?

We believe powerful critical thinking and exploration practice commonly used in effective science, technology, engineering and math classrooms should be drawn across disciplines and connected by a common or transdisciplinary theme, allowing students to:

  • Ask deep real-world questions
  • Collaborate with their peers
  • Arrive at meaningful conclusions
  • Explore STEM careers

What is Transdisciplinary?

“The idea of transdisciplinary literally means beyond all the disciplines but connected to all the disciplines by a unifying issue or topic of inquiry.”
