Activities for Celebrating STEM/STEAM Day

by Diana Benner

National STEM/STEAM Day falls on November 8. It’s the perfect day to help students focus on science, technology, engineering, art, and math. Creating an understanding of STEM and STEAM is extremely important. Therefore, on November 8, celebrate STEAM/STEM Day by encouraging your students to do a STEM or STEAM project!

Multiple studies have highlighted the importance of STEM education. STEM skills are more important now than ever because STEM enhances one’s capacity to innovate and use technology and science as a tool to solve problems. In addition,  STEM careers have increased by 79% since the 1990s and are projected to continue to grow by at least 13% into 2027.
