Why is STEM and emerging industries education important?

STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.

STEM embraces every part of our lives, from building bridges to building robots. It helps us to face and understand big problems like challenging global warming and finding cures.

This area of research work is developing at a pace and there is a growing emphasis and evidence on the ability of our minds to change, adapt and develop to the world around us. In terms of learning and the way we learn, this has massive implications. It simple terms in means we have significant influence over what and how we think, how this can affect our total life experience. Work of this type in schools has shown to improve behaviour, learning, emotional literacy, mental health and OFSTED ratings.

As an organisation, we collaborate with academic expertise, combined with our company’s technical skills, market knowledge and networks, to be the foundation for real impact in education. Working in collaboration with leading Engineering, Technology and Science experts, we utilise the best academic research as the foundation for evidence-based practice in the classroom.

STEM Clubs are a fun way to teach and learn the STEM subjects. By exposing students to STEM we are helping young people understand burgeoning industries, through different field of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths). Our objective is to use the best Applied Science, Engineering and Technology research, guided into evidence-based classroom practices. We are all about bringing research evidence to life.


Why Does It Matter?

The collaboration between educators and Scientists has taken the form of an emerging discipline known as emerging technologies.

This developing field blends the collective specialties of Nanotechnology, Engineering, Aerospace, Cognitive Science, and Education to improve teaching methods and curricula. Understanding how STEM fields can inform education strategies and finding out what teachers want and need to know about the ways students learn, are two key drivers behind the STEM initiative.

Many areas of STEM and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) are already producing research findings that could provide ideas to improve teaching methods and curricula. For example, studies of memory formation and retrieval suggest testing is important for learning. The inclusion of the Arts, particularly Music, can enhance memory and attention levels, according to recent research. Also, multiple studies investigating the impact of sleep and exercise on young brains indicate the importance of these activities in brain development, function, and health. Integrating this research into classroom practice, however, requires meaningful dialogue between educators, scientists, and policymakers to adequately inform both research agendas and teaching practices.
