Idaho Legislators met with Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) schools in the Capitol rotunda this week. The Idaho Legislature celebrated over 500 students throughout the state who participated in the “STEM Matters” programs. STEM schools focus on early learning and development in a collaborative and project-based environment.
The goal of STEM is to create opportunities for educators, students, and communities to build a competitive Idaho work force and economy. STEM offers a hands-on approach to education with the objective to build critical thinkers, collaborators, and innovators with problem-solving capabilities.
