How can we address racial disparities in science and medicine?
By Dr. Chloe Poston
STEM — the acronym used to describe science, technology, engineering and math — is used by policymakers, universities and private foundations to allocate funding to support the sciences.

The Huffington Post

The latest educational fad term is "STEM," which stands for a curriculum in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
