    Science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) research refers to experiments conducted to address problems in those fields that can be tested using the scientific method. The scientific method is an inquiry process used to systematically study, investigate and to provide explanations for observed phenomenon in the natural world. This method is used by STEM professionals to answer questions they have about important world problems and usually includes carefully orchestrating a situation that allows them to observe, measure and test their ideas.
