What are the S, T, and E in STEM? How are they related?
S, T and E: What do they mean? In your small groups: Discuss and write down working definitions of science, technology and engineering.
Science: Technology: Engineer/Engineering:
Reflect and Process Create a visual representation of the relationship between these three field (science, technology, and engineering) by: Choosing a technology at your table. Describing the engineers role in developing the technology. Identifying the science knowledge that the engineers needed to use to develop that technology.
Where do science and technology fit into the EDP?
Science and engineering are the same thing. Science and engineering are mutually exclusive fields. Engineering is a branch of science. Engineers fix cars/drive trains/work on computers/etc. Technology is only computers or things that use electricity. Some common ideas about science, engineering, and technology:
