After going through a long break due to the global pandemic, things slowly seem to get back to normal as the positivity rate and death rate of Coronavirus cases are declining.
Punjab has announced the first virtual science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM) competition in government schools which will begin from June 7 to June 17.
On Twitter, Punjab Education Minister Murad Raas made the announcement, saying that this intervention will improve students’ engagement in STEM subjects.

“I am proud to announce the first STEM Competition in Government Schools. This intervention by us will improve engagement by students and teachers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) subjects. All sessions will be broadcasted live on Facebook.”Raas announced on Twitter.
STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering, and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach.
STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications, rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects.
