Positive educational outcomes for students in the Kingdom

STEM is the newest approach to education both in Cambodia and internationally. STEM is an acronym that stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.

These subjects pervade all parts of our modern lives. A STEM based curriculum is an interdisciplinary approach to academic learning, coupled with real-world lessons that aim to inspire and excite students, giving them the ability to compete in a new economy.

Simply put, STEM is the basis for school curriculums internationally. The key outcome of a STEM curriculum is preparing the students of today for the jobs of tomorrow. Jobs where the critical analysis, networking skills, emotional soft skills, and self confidence will be indispensable. Hands on learning and a focus on real world applications are what STEM is all about.

In The Post’s STEM Post Tech supplement, we will explore the STEM methodology. What does it mean, why is important, what are the perceived positive outcomes and how is it implemented in different institutions in Cambodia.

As well as the educational side of the STEM curriculum, The Post talked to industry professionals in various fields for their opinion of how STEM can equip today’s students for the jobs of tomorrow

As more and more industries see new businesses disrupt markets, increasingly via new uses of technology, students of today must be given the skills to adapt to the inevitable industry changes of tomorrow.

The methodology employed via a STEM curriculum can increase a student’s ability to see future possibilities, as well as adapt to changes, and communicate effectively to achieve positive outcomes that can appease all concerned.

Experts in Cambodia and abroad have foreseen a surge in job opportunities for STEM subject graduates over the coming years. Cambodian development will be key as these jobs emerge. This continuing economic development will move towards the technologically driven digital economy of tomorrow.

Cambodia will need the STEM graduates of tomorrow to fill the jobs gap that has arisen as Cambodia has developed at an unprecedentedly fast rate. STEM subjects, and the STEM methodology, are directly applicable to the future of jobs in developing sectors such as construction, manufacturing, health and many others.

The growth of the new digital economy in the Kingdom, as well as the educational sector growth, means more and more schools are equipping themselves with the correct materials and staff to facilitate a STEM learning curriculum into the future.
