Developing a New Curriculum for STEM Education for Secondary Students
Current Journal of Applied Science and Technology,
In Hong Kong, STEM (Science, Technology and Mathematics Education) education was promoted since 2015. After proposed in the same year’s Policy Address, the Education Bureau (EDB) would renew and enrich the curricula and learning activities of the Science, Technology and Mathematics Key Learning Areas, and enhances the training of teachers, thereby allowing primary and secondary students to fully unleash their potential in innovation. STEM programme aims to better prepare Hong Kong students for the rapid economic, scientific and technological developments ahead, and STEM education is being promoted as a key emphasis in the ongoing renewal of the school curriculum that is essential for their lifelong learning and whole-person development. According to the information provided by the STEM Education service provider, each participant is charged around HK$600 to $3000 for the STEM workshop. As a result, we estimate that more than 50 million will be spent in the STEM Education-related business.
Through this study, the project team aims to a) review and summarise the current STEM curriculums in Hong Kong, b) design and implement a curriculum of STEM education for secondary school, c) conduct workshop for the new curriculum and invite students to take part, and d) measure the effectiveness of STEM by survey.
