Celebrating STEM/STEAM Day!

On November 8th, many organizations celebrate STEM Day. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Recently, the "A" has been added by some organizations to recognize how Art is an important part of all we do as well. Although it is an unofficial holiday, we celebrate STEM education throughout the United States as as a way to inspire and motivate individuals and communities.

This day recognizes the educational efforts by schools, organizations, and universities to promote and retain interest in the STEM fields, especially for children and young adults. These efforts help build creativity and critical thinking skills as well as helping students explore possible careers in these fields.
