Why get peevish about an acronym? They're everywhere, including in math.

This list goes on for 50 pages, starting with a smattering of symbols
"before the letter A":


The inadvertent link the "stem cells" might actually be fortuitous.

The public's comprehension of STEM is at the embryonic level?

Why not accept that the species as a whole is still in its infancy.

We don't have all the answers, and, looking back, there was never a
time when we did.

Scoffing at the present ain't hard to do.

How about: Technology, Engineering, Civics and History (TECH)

Or how about: Science, Math, Art and Technology (SMART)

Anyway, given computer science and medical science are both sciences,
I don't see where STEM is missing either.
