STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics)

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics)—often given as “STEM fields” or “STEM education”—is a popular acronym for a scientific area of specialization. “STEM, which stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics, has been operating on P.E.I. for more than a year” was cited in a Canadian Press news story in October 1992. “STEM” has been popularly used since 2000, when the Journal of STEM Education was first published.


Wikipedia: STEM fields
STEM fields or STEM education is an acronym for the fields of study in the categories of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The term is typically used in addressing issues surrounding federal sciences, education, workforce, national security, and immigration fields.

Definition
The definitions of the purview of STEM, and what is excluded, varies from organization to organization. In the broader definition, STEM degrees includes the fields of Chemistry, Computer and Information Technology Science, Engineering, Geosciences, Life Sciences, Mathematical Sciences, Physics and Astronomy,Psychology, Social Sciences, and STEM Education and Learning Research

16 October 1992, Lethbridge (Alberta) Herald, “STEM emphasizes science for kids” (CP), pg. C7, col. 2:
STEM, which stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics, has been operating on P.E.I. for more than a year.

28 April 1994, Gazette Telegraph (Colorado Springs, CO), “Innovative teachers reaping Tandy Technology awards” by Trudy Welsh, pg. B3, col. 4:
Lehman and physics teach David Ulmer, who won the 1991 award, were part of the Coronado team that developed Coronado’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics program, or STEM, which is unique in the Rocky Mountain region.

Database: ERIC The ERIC database is an initiative of the U.S. Department of Education.
Summary: Key New England industries including information technology, defense technology, biotechnology, environmental services, health care and university research rely upon people with skills in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields. Yet, just 20 percent of New England high school students who took the SATs in 2005 indicated a desire to major in a STEM field. That is below the U.S. average of 26 percent and significantly below the rate of North Carolina, a major competitor where 33 percent of SAT-takers said they were interested in a STEM major. To head off labor shortages in crucial STEM fields, New England needs to shore up the pipeline of talent with a long-term strategy that focuses on K-12 and higher education. While there are roles for state governments and the private sector to play in improving STEM education, educators urge New England’s congressional delegation to propose a significant “federal” initiative to encourage and promote STEM education nationally.
