The "M" in STEM stands for Mathematics. For a lot of people, Mathematics is a scary topic and viewed as extremely difficult. It is important to establish a love and understanding for Math early and work to build children's confidence in the subject. Math is all around us, and even if people do no realize that they are doing it, they use math all day every day. It shows up in art with the proportions used in portraits, it shows up in the medicines that they take, it shows up while driving around town, and it shows up whenever we talk about history. We start young in the hopes of preparing kids to appreciate the beauty of Mathematics when they are older.
