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 teaching the students separately, STEM integrates all these subjects to establish a cohesive and far more effective learning framework.
In an earlier STEM-related development, an Australian academy recognized the Pakistani scientist Shazia Sadiq for advanced STEM research. Moreover, Huawei and HEC have been working on plans to Nurture Pakistani STEM Talent.
