ThinkTV’s STEM World Has Something for Everyone!
STEM is a way to explore and understand the world, providing a framework for understanding important ideas, big and small. It provides a foundation for a lifetime of learning and informed decision-making.
STEM is also a way to change the world, drawing upon the skills and knowledge of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. STEM fields are important for our future, and offer higher than average salaries in an expanding range of occupations. Realizing the importance of STEM in everyday life, ThinkTV created STEM World, a place where people of all ages can participate in learning something new about a topic in the STEM Category.
Here are just a couple of features STEM World provides:
