In January, Discovery Education debuted STEM Connect, a web-based supplemental K-8 resource, developed with the input of educators and curriculum experts, which helps educators create engaging STEM lessons that strengthen students’ critical-thinking skills.

STEM Connect is built on a 4Cs STEM skills framework that helps students develop the creative, critical thinking, communication, and collaboration skills needed for success beyond graduation. Its flexible, modular learning units give students an easy-to-follow experience using high-quality interdisciplinary resources that can be used in a wide variety of classrooms and across all subjects.

eSchool News sat down with Cindy Moss, vice president of global STEM initiatives at Discovery Education, to talk about some of the important motivating factors behind STEM Connect.
