STEM is an integrated program of instruction whose goal is to inform and engage students in STEM career paths, thereby developing a qualified workforce to meet future US demand. DoDEA's schools at Fort Benning began implementing the Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) Initiative during the 2012-13 school year.
