Engage Students in Solving Real-World Problems with STEM

If your students aren’t excited about STEM the problem might be a lack of exposure to real-world challenges.

Real-world problem solving should be at the core of any STEM education program. It increases student buy-in as students realize that their work has an impact that extends beyond the classroom walls. It also helps students develop empathy as they take a walk in someone else’s shoes in order to understand the problems they face before coming up with potential solutions.
