That is the driving force behind the STEM revolution (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) - there’s an urgency in our country to prepare students for a competitive, technology-fueled future. But technology without imagination, science without wonder, engineering without curiosity, and math without connection to real life, won’t solve even part of the problem.
