Abstract:Proponents for STEM education argue it has potential to contribute to student learning, their lives, and global economies. STEM’s promise is viewed with enough credibility that some nations have begun to adopt its principles through mandates and funding. If STEM is seen as a practical solution for future learning, then it is necessary for design and technology instructors to consider how to incorporate STEM strategies into their curriculum. The purpose of this paper is to illustrate three approaches that can be used in STEM education (Silo, Embedded, and Integration) and apply them within the context of a technology education course.
