This infographic looks at science,specifically the value of teaching students science from a young age because of the many skills that are developed. These skills include developing questions, collecting evidence, forming decisions, constructing information and communicating. It also discusses the FERA cycle, as in:

* Focus

* Explore

* Reflect

* Apply

The infographic then explores how STEM has the ability to impact her choices throughout her lifetime. This infographic was created by the Smithsonian and provides great information throughout (including a more detailed explanation of the FERA cycle).
