Top 14 STEM Discussion Topics

Our top 14 STEM discussion topics.

Discussion plays a critical role in learning, especially in STEM when talking about big and sometimes complicated ideas. Discussion gets students actively engaging with new topics, recalling related material and understanding how and where STEM relates to their lives. Working through these discussion topics gives them a deeper context and can propel interest in learning.

Discussions are a great way to introduce a topic, and brainstorm ideas, also giving students an opportunity to practice giving each other feedback on projects and collaborate. Here are our top 10 discussion topics for STEM.
