STEM: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths. These subjects might not immediately jump into your mind as the most creative, exciting, or innovative areas you could explore for further study or your career.
But, there’s more to STEM than meets the eye!
Check out these of examples of people who are blazing their own trails in STEM:
