Why STEM is so Important for Children

As a parent or educator (or parent-educator), you’ve probably heard many times that learning basic STEM ideas is valuable for children of all ages. But why the emphasis on STEM’s importance as a part of any kid’s education? Does STEM really matter?


Featuring a curriculum focused on science and math, small class sizes, and building a school community,  Horizon Science Academy Des Moines is a tuition-free, non-selective, and non-profit public charter school ready to open and serve 190 K-3 students in Fall 2023.
