Have you considered how often you come across STEM in our lives? The sun you wake up to, the food you eat, the car you drive, the video game you play and just about everything you do require Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
Therefore, an awareness of such arenas becomes crucial in our everyday lives. One such initiative is the celebration of the Computer Science Education Week which US President Barrack Obama kicked off with an Hour of Code and announcements of a $20 million philanthropic commitment to train 25000 new Computer Science teachers for US schools by fall 2016.
