Students’ perceptions of what STEM is and
how it has been implemented in their schools
is reported in this paper. Students were asked
in focus groups about what STEM is and how
they had seen the progress their two respective
schools had made in its implementation. The
data showed that students were very familiar
with what STEM is and how it was developing
in their schools. While younger students
enjoyed the fun and the challenge, secondary
students could see the potential for the STEM
they are doing at school to help in their future
employment. Another interesting factor revealed
in the study was the alignment of student
answers with each of the cognitive levels of
Blooms Taxonomy of Educational Objectives.
