Needless to say, previous experience shapes future attitudes; when you ask someone who was previously attacked by a dog about their views on dogs, s/he would express worry and annoyance towards them, or maybe other pets as well.

'STEAM; When A Makes the Difference!'

Intending to raise innovators, well-equipped with knowledge, and have a well-rounded educational background that would help them with the nature of future jobs, educators have been developing different methods to spark interest and passion in learners to learn more about different subjects, to be able to choose the pathway they want to pursue. That is because, even if they would like to pursue a career in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields, they will also need a baseline of different skills to adapt to their academic or professional careers.

In other words, science cannot be confined within four walls.
