Science

In STEM, science discoveries are made, and new innovative solutions are formed by taking the knowledge gained through a multitude of discoveries of science disciplines working together.

In sciences we are constantly asking questions and developing explanations and theories about our natural world. The answers to these questions help develop solutions and continuous exploration into new technologies.

Science is a small word, for many complex systems and explanations. Some forms of science used in STEM are: biochemistry, biomechanics, conservation, climatology, chemistry, animal science, agriculture, and physics. All fields of science depend on mathematics, technology, and each other.

Agriculture

Agriculture is the practice of farming, including cultivation of the soil for the growing of crops and the rearing of animals to provide food, wool, and other products.
