Is STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) the answer to preparing our kids to be the innovators of the future? That’s the question I was recently asked during the Q&A session at the end of a speech. Based on what other attendees said, I got myself wound up about the question and my belief on what is really needed.
In a nutshell, while STEM is a great start, its not sufficient to win in the emerging creative / innovation economy.
- Critical thinking skills
- Discovering personal creativity
- Learn that failure builds self-confidence
