STEM Education – Implementing Maker Education at Schools

Project details

This project will develop students’ knowledge of constructionism and making in local STEM education. It will enhance students’ understanding of the theory and practice of constructionism and making in STEM education, and facilitate reflections on their knowledge and skills about teaching and learning in different school contexts. Students will be encouraged to work in small groups to: (a) analyse issues related to STEM education in local context and (b) collaborate on the implementation of STEM curriculum materials for teaching in local schools. Students’ performance in the course will be evaluated through a variety of means including reports from schools, continuous assessment and online reflections as well as an end-of-course multimedia presentation. The course will also invite guest speakers to classes to help students prepare for their projects.
