What is E-STEM?

E-STEM engages students in meaningful, real-world environmental problem solving that integrates science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). E-STEM is not only a philosophy of teaching that promotes interdisciplinary learning, but also inspires students to apply what they learn to help solve complex environmental issues.
