    Why is STEM so important?

    In Fife we have recognised the importance of STEM for several years and in 2011-12 a group of partners started to work with the Fife Economy Partnership to address this issue.



                         "A competitive science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) skills base is vital to our future as a knowledge intensive economy. As the economy rebalances towards manufacturing investment and exports, major growth sectors require these skills"
