STEM education aims to prepare students to solve the big problems of the world. But we now realize that it’s not enough just to know how to code and calculate. Creating solutions -- especially for today’s issues -- means tapping into our humanity. It means developing skills of empathy, compassion, self-discipline and social awareness, among others.
