The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) on Tuesday (Dec. 12) previewed its 2018 stamp program, including a "STEM Education" set of four stamps. One of the four designs includes the depiction of an Apollo command and service module to represent engineering.

'E' is for Apollo: 'STEM Education' stamps use spacecraft to illustrate engineering

NASA's Apollo spacecraft symbolizes the "E" in "STEM" on a set of four new U.S. postage stamps.

The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) on Friday (April 6) issued its new "STEM Education" Forever stamps, celebrating the role of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education in keeping the U.S. a global leader in innovation. Each of the four STEM Education stamps feature a collage of faces, symbols, drawings and numbers to represent the complexity and interconnectedness of the disciplines.
