Exploring STEM Subjects At Home

[Collaborative Post]

STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) can open up fantastic opportunities for students, both in terms of a future career and simply on a personal level. Lots of subjects fall under the ‘STEM’ umbrella, from physics and engineering to medicine and biochemistry. Each of these subjects help students develop highly transferrable skills that they can carry through all aspects of their lives. These skills include things like the ability to work as part of a team, think critically and solve problems.
