STEM learning focuses on educating individuals of all ages — primarily school-aged children and teens — in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Integrating STEM learning into the curriculum is an important part of the modern education system because it helps to promote creative thinking and provides children and teens with essential skills they’ll need to succeed in the future.

It is important to introduce STEM learning as early as preschool to children of all genders. This engagement can be nurtured by allowing young girls to collaborate with their peers and giving them the freedom to select projects that interest them.

It’s never too early to introduce STEM learning into your child’s life. Throughout this guide, you will find several ways to help prevent your daughter from falling into the STEM gap, including activities, toys, curriculum, and more.
