Science, Technology Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM)
Science and Technology/Engineering
In Massachusetts, science education includes life science, physical science, earth and space science, and technology/ engineering. Science is way of knowing and understanding the natural and designed world.
The science and technology/engineering standards are intended to drive engaging, relevant, rigorous, and coherent instruction that emphasizes student mastery of both disciplinary core ideas (concepts) and application of science and engineering practices (skills) to support student readiness for citizenship, college, and careers.
