The Benefits of Studying STEM

Whether you’re considering a major for college, or simply looking for a direction to take your curriculum, STEM is most definitely a promising option. STEM, which stands for science, technology, math, and engineering, will set up every student for success. It is a broad umbrella for a lot of subjects in those areas.
STEM lessons are impactful for students because they are often hands-on. Additionally, it allows students to practice constructing and applying hypotheses. This idea reinforces that failure is okay. The goal is for students to try and try again until they succeed. Students in these types of high school/college classes, for example, are often in a lab environment where they can apply said hypotheses.
Since the recent pandemic, the lab setting might not always be available, which is why it’s so important that online learning and online tutoring services exist. Teachers and students all over the world are finding ways to make the most of our “work-from-home” situation. The desire to learn (in STEM concentrations) is still alive and well.

What are the STEM areas of study?

Should I consider studying in this?

If you’re interested in any of the previously mentioned study areas, you should consider pursuing a STEM study path. But, it might be important to know the “type” of students that would excel in these areas. Someone who has good analytical and problem-solving abilities, an interest in how the world works, how technology works, and how it can impact human life, health, and well-being, emphasizing natural math skills.
If you are a student interested in STEM, you should definitely consider the Miles Smart Camp STEM for Kids. This is a virtual learning opportunity, available this summer (2021), for any student K-12 interested in any of these areas of studies. As previously mentioned, getting your toes wet in these areas will only enrich your learning experience in the future. This will be a fun and educational experience for kids to learn more about the world around them. There will be a curriculum to follow, and students will have a fun project to complete at the end of the camp.
