Meeting and Exceeding Standards
STEM literacy is an individual’s ability to apply his or her understanding of how the world works within and across the four areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. It does not simply mean achieving literacy in these areas individually. Rather, STEM literacy, and beyond that, fluency, refers to the ability to investigate, question and use these facets of the world in an interdisciplinary manner.
