STEM education for students is an essential aspect of today’s education since it leads to greater development in the modern world and more technological achievements. Achieving this sort of education can be done by performing an engineering analysis to determine the volume content of a wine bottle. The project conducted here was to determine the volume of a wine bottle by measuring it at various points and using mathematics to perform this real-world analysis. Its objective is not only to reflect on what was done but to introduce it as a STEM-related project to encourage new growth within the STEM fields. There was also extended reasoning as to why STEM is important in today’s world through small examples of what already exists. This is done as a step toward increasing the standing that the United States holds currently within the world’s STEM community, which is low compared to other countries. This is partially due to a lack of interest that many American students have in STEM-related fields. To fix this, the STEM-related activities that students perform in schools today need to incorporate what they do in their everyday lives.
