STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. STEM programs encourage students to get involved with various forms of science and math. I have grown up in the Silicon Valley constantly surrounded by STEM opportunities, programs, and classes. In high school I was able to further pursue my interests through electives, such as Electrical Engineering and Neuroscience. Because of my bias in favor of STEM, I decided to reach out to other students and teachers to hear their opinions about STEM.
