The grouping of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) was first introduced as an acronym in 2001 by Judith Ramaley, an American biologist and assistant director at the National Science Foundation (NSF). Since the early 2000s, STEM-focused curricula have grown across and beyond the United States to prepare students to enter the workforce within these fields.
