An Integrated Approach to STEM

National Geographic Education's STEM resources are multidisciplinary and integrate subjects beyond science, technology, engineering, and math to include critical thinking, problem-solving, and 21st century skills.

Stem and Geo-Literacy

The combination of STEM knowledge with geo-literacy—the ability to make decisions based on an understanding of the systems and connections in the world—prepares students to prosper in the 21st century technology-based economy.

Exploration

Since 1888, National Geographic has supported exploration and discovery through scientific fieldwork with cutting-edge technology.

Problem-Solving

Critical thinking and problem solving are key STEM skills for the engineering and design work that supports our groundbreaking scientific fieldwork and expeditions.

GIS

Users of geographic information systems (GIS) can identify patterns and relationships in data.

Teamwork

Communication and collaboration are critical for exploration, fieldwork, and in STEM careers.
