Abstract

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.
