5 Benefits of Integrating STEM and SEL
STEM education and Social Emotional Learning (SEL) have many common components that align. It makes sense to provide instruction that can build skills in both STEM and SEL. These two paths may seem different in some ways, but they have many strategies in common. STEM and SEL can work together to accomplish similar goals. When taught in alignment, elementary students can reap the benefits of this integrated approach. Learn more here! #STEM #SEL
