STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications.
It’s no secret that jobs in the STEM field are the fastest growing careers, and are projected to grow another 17 percent in the next decade. By the time all of our students graduate in a few years or so, over half of the available jobs will be in the STEM field and a large chunk of the rest will require employees to have some STEM knowledge. Ramagya students are introduced to robotics in their school years so that they can discover their interests and talents in this field.
Robotics is also a field that has the ability to empower young girls in the classroom. STEM-focused fields are traditionally male-dominated, leaving young girls to question their ability to program or build computers. Realizing the same Ramagya school has stepped forward in engaging especially the girls with robotics and technology in the classroom. When girls realize their ability to build robots and programs, they are empowered to have successful futures and create innovative technology.
