High school students are learning about STEM topics that are related to careers, like computer science, engineering, physics, and more.
STEM students are also learning about topics that can be found in traditional classes, like the sciences and math.
STEM classes are also being introduced to kids who don’t have access to computers, like young adults who might have never tried coding before.
For example, some high schools have started teaching STEM concepts to students who aren’t native English speakers.
But it’s still unclear how this new curriculum will impact students’ learning and attitudes toward STEM.
For some, it could be beneficial to get them to think about STEM in a different way.
For others, it might be just as important to teach them to be more comfortable with math and science.
And for students like Meghan, a junior at the University of Wisconsin, it’s a little different.
Meghan is a third-year student who plans to go to college in 2018 and has never even considered STEM before.
She said that she wants to become a programmer and that her friends and family have been supportive, but she’s not sure what her future holds.
“I have to be aware that my future is different from my peers,” Meghan said.
“It’s so hard to tell someone who doesn’t know any more about the world and the sciences.”
Meghan’s mom, Jennifer, said she thinks the new curriculum is important because it will help her daughter see the world differently, but that she also feels that it’s important for the younger students to have access.
“We have to help them understand it, too,” Jennifer said.
Megan has already enrolled in STEM classes, which includes learning about the science behind the game Minecraft and learning about computer vision and robotics.
Meaghan said that it was fun to see her friends’ reactions and that she was excited to learn more about how STEM might work in the future.
“My dad said, ‘You’re going to love this,'” Meghan recalled.
“And my mom said, [my dad] was like, ‘Oh, that’s amazing.'”
For Meghan and other students like her, it seems that STEM classes may not just be the next step toward becoming a programmer, but also a more valuable one.
“This is the next stage in my life,” Meaghan explained.
“There’s something so cool about being able to get out of your classroom and actually start being in the world.”
