This myth has eaten so deep that everyone seems to believe it. STEM is very much for everyone. You do not need extraordinary abilities or a genius-type brain to excel in it. To say that only the most brainy kids do well in STEM is more of a myth than a fact.
The beautiful thing about STEM is that there is a variety of fields to major in depending on one’s interest.
So, if you have a young child who you think is gravitating towards STEM, please encourage them no matter their academic abilities.
