      Hi 120trn28!

      Because it’s interesting! STEM is a really exciting field to be working in if you like making new discoveries and finding out how things work. Are you thinking about a STEM career?

      The reason for me is that STEM is at the basis of everyone’s life as we know it.
      Nowadays without STEM, you would have no electricity, no heating, no food, no medicines, no clothes, no internet, no smartphone, no cars, no TV, no tourism, nothing.
      This means that STEM is also what allows non-STEM people to do what they do, it provides them the tools for it and allows them to dedicate their time to those other tasks (also important!) instead of spending that time to try to survive.

      We live in a world dominated by science, often without realizing it!
      That is also why I consider programs like “I’m an astronaut” very important, because they help to spread the passion for this! 😉
