Necessity of STEM Education in Schools

One of the biggest short comings of our country is the shackling education system, that has since many years been chained at the hands of the conventionalist ideas and practices. In spite of being aware of the ground reality of having lacked in providing sound education, we have been ignorant. According to well-informed research a brain develops most rapidly during childhood than during any other period of life. Early brain development sure has a lasting impact on a child’s ability to learn and succeed. The quality of a child’s experiences in the first few years of life – positive or negative – helps shape how their brain develops. This is one of the underpinning facts of which the most successful nations and economies have taken a grip of, taking the best possible measures to provide the right kind of course curriculum and the use of the most suited teaching methods and thereby develop the most productive and prolific brains. This is what may be called as a tool or strategy that they have adopted to help flourish their nation. Thus, the unwavering need of bringing improvement in the education system is needed right from the basic elementary level.  One of the many ways we could bring about this improvement is through introducing STEM Education. Essentially, providing STEM Education in this context appears as the incumbent requirement. Moreover, not ignoring the fact that we have already entered a digital age where the success of any nation would be depending on how much futuristic its technologically is, it is of immense importance that we prepare our younger generation to be ‘smart enough’ to tackle the complex challenges that are yet to come. STEM is a major focus of the global initiatives aimed at enhancing economic prosperity and the survival of a ‘healthy’ nation through the development of a highly intellectual workforce. As such, many countries are making considerable investments in STEM educational initiatives. It is time that we set up our gears and prepare our force of the futuristic leaders who may be no less than others by making every school a STEM oriented school.
