STEM is the most widely used term for the curriculum and focus on science, technology, engineering, and math, but some argue that in order to make this complete, art must be added. Thus, the term STEAM has been created: science, technology, engineering, art, and math. No matter what you call it-STEM or STEAM-it is undeniable that the elements of critical thinking, curiosity, problem-solving, teamwork, and inquiry are crucial to the education of the future generation.
