why STEM education

At the OSLN Akron Hub’s platform schools, STEM education is a teaching philosophy that fosters creativity and innovative thinking. STEM education integrates multiple subject areas, providing students with the opportunity to develop inventive solutions to real-world problems.

Platform schools within the OSLN Akron Hub help young people of all academic abilities with an interest in science, technology, engineering and math to think critically, take charge of their learning and succeed in a global business age.

OSLN and its hubs believe Ohio’s future will be built on its capacity for innovation, invention and creative problem solving. STEM education produces the kind of thinkers and problem-solvers such a world demands. The OSLN Akron Hub helps teachers and learners achieve these goals by fostering opportunities for partnership and collaboration that create unique prospects for the schools and programs.
