STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Education) education is an important agenda in K-12 schools in the 21st century, for developing young students withproblem solving ability and digital creativity to meet challenges in the digitalized society. The successful implementation of STEM education in K-12 schools needs a holistic plan with coherent strategies in the aspects of curriculum development, teacher development, and parental education. This webinar serves as a platform to provide an international perspective on these important aspects for implementing STEM education in K-12. Speakers from different countries/regions will share insights of the major practices, existing challenges and future plans for implementing STEM education in K-12 schools in their own countries/regions. Discussions will focus on the critical issues for accommodating needs of K-12 schools for suitable curriculum integration to deliver STEM education across different grades; professional development for teachers to engage students in STEM education in school; and educational campaigns for parents to support students’ engagement in STEM education outside school.
