This survey looks at visualization techniques used in science and engineering education to enhance student learning and encourage underrepresented students to pursue technical degrees. This article aims to encourage faculty in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) disciplines to use visual methods to communicate to their students. Visual learning is an important method for exploiting students' visual senses to enhance learning and engage their interest. This methodology also has the potential to increase the number of students in STEM fields, especially of women and minority students. A visual approach to science and engineering enhances communication. This visualization revolution shows that letting scientists engage the higher cognitive parts of the brain by thinking and communicating visually improved how they performed their research.
