Understanding the “E” in STEM
Engineering education degree programs significantly impact student awareness about the possibilities of engineering as a career. In the past most educational emphasis was placed on science and mathematics. Engineering fosters the technological education of society. Creating and implementing K-12 engineering curricula will form a solid foundation for students to explore this field. The overall purpose of the UC STEM program is to integrate the specific topics of science, technology, engineering, and math into all subject areas.
