About STEM

STEM represents some of the fastest-growing and in-demand fields in the world today. And here at Southwest Charlotte STEM Academy, we’re passionate about inspiring the next generation of engineers, artists, and innovators.

The world is changing around us. Digital technology has become a core part of our everyday lives. Advances in technology impact everything, especially the world of work. 

As the world of work changes, we will need to change our skills to match. Overcoming these limitations requires a priority focus on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), including the development of workplace skills in STEM. Future careers will also rely heavily on ‘21st-century skills’ — for example, critical thinking, creativity, cultural awareness, collaboration, and problem-solving. When done well, STEM education complements the development of 21st-century skills.
