Every new development, be it positive or negative has its importance and disadvantages as well. Its importance gives it a penetration advantage to be valued and appreciated in spite of its disadvantages. Just like the reality of sickness created opportunities for doctors to be valued and appreciated in their sphere of influence for saving lives, Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics have not done any less. Not only does it create opportunities, it also suggests ways those opportunities can be harnessed.
In our present age of growing advancement, the importance of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) cannot be overemphasized as its relevance finds expression in our day to day activities as humans ranging from the alarm clocks that greet us in the morning, the alarm bells that alerts us of a visitor, the automobiles that convey us to our places of work and the stair lifts that finally lands us on the floor of our offices. Its importance is not only appreciated in the industries, roads and all other obvious infrastructure where it is easily spotted but has also been domesticated such that some equipment used in the preparation of sumptuous meals owe its allegiance to them.
