Helping Students Prepare for a STEM Degree
What is STEM Study?
STEM education focuses on science, technology, engineering and mathematics. In recent years, universities have experienced an increase in the number of students enrolling in STEM-focused degrees, as the demand for STEM workers is on a steady rise. Emerging trends in technology and the job market require an advanced understanding of science and mathematics.
Florida Polytechnic University launched STEMStudy.com, as a handy, easy-to-use resource for high school students and their parents who are considering a STEM-focused college degree program. The site contains information and tools about the college preparation and application process, including a financial aid calculator, STEM careers glossary and an application checklist with tips to consider through all four years of high school.
