Why is STEM education so important?

Teaching skills in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) is important because 65% of today’s students will do jobs that don’t currently exist3. STEM education creates critical thinkers, increases science literacy, and enables the next generation of innovators.

Choosing Acer to support STEM teaching means that you can drive better learning outcomes and transform the way you teach these vital skills, whilst using devices that are affordable and easy to manage.
