STEM is an acronym for the fields of study in the categories of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The term STEM was coined by Dr. Judith Ramaley when she was assistant director of the education and human resources directorate at the National Science Foundation (NSF) from 2001 to 2004. Ramaley’s concept of STEM situates learning in the context of solving real world problems or creating new opportunities—pursuit of innovation.” Source: http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/09041/947944-298.stm.
