STREAM: Science Technology Reading Engineering Agriculture Mathematics is different from other Science Technology Engineering Mathematics (STEM) programs as it has an emphasis on developing reading skills as a foundation. The informational reading of STEM subjects can be a barrier for youth. The STREAM series begins with a reading overview that provides the core reading skills needed to get the most out of STEM activities.
