STEM is:
Computer Science – 71 percent
Basic Engineering – 16 percent
Science – 13 percent
Maths – 2 percent

In the future many STEM-related jobs will be offered across the world, in fact according to Ex-President Obama there will be around 8.65 million employees in teaching STEM in the United States alone.

High School goes beyond what Intermediate level students do and conveys more in-school and out-of-school opportunities and focuses on more practical tasks. As a conclusion STEM is the future of computer learning and it’s assets will definitely prove useful to the future generations.
