What is STEM learning?
We believe powerful critical thinking and exploration practice commonly used in effective science, technology, engineering and math classrooms should be drawn across disciplines and connected by a common or transdisciplinary theme, allowing students to:
- Ask deep real-world questions
- Collaborate with their peers
- Arrive at meaningful conclusions
- Explore STEM careers
What is Transdisciplinary?
“The idea of transdisciplinary literally means beyond all the disciplines but connected to all the disciplines by a unifying issue or topic of inquiry.”

Mythbusters' Kari Byron Dishes on Girls and STEM
Kari Byron (Mythbusters, Head Rush) is incredibly passionate about science, and she’s joining an increasingly large number of educators, parents, and celebrities in urging young girls to brush aside “nerdy” stereotypes that have plagued them for years — and get them to explore STEM opportunities and careers. We caught up with Kari at SXSWedu this past March and asked her a few questions on the topic.
