STEM education is an integrated curriculum (as opposed to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics taught in isolation) that is driven by problem solving, discovery, exploratory project/problem-based learning, and student-centered development of ideas and solutions. This workshop focused on 21st Century tools to enhance STEM education at all levels.
