Game-based learning forces students to apply knowledge in a contextualized way, it creates an interdisciplinary learning experience where subject-specific knowledge is used in a context that requires diverse applications. The borders between disciplines become fuzzy and ambiguous.

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).
