STEM education integrates concepts that are usually taught as separate subjects in different classes and emphasizes the application of knowledge to real-life situations. A lesson or unit in a STEM class is typically based around finding a solution to a real-world problem and tends to emphasize project-based learning. Many STEM lessons involve building models and simulating situations, and impactful STEM lessons ensure that students understand the connection to the real world. These tours have been designed to connect classroom-based learning concepts to the work being done in regional employers.
