This book looks at the purpose and pedagogy of STEM teaching and explores the ways in which STEM subjects can interact in the curriculum to enhance student understanding, achievement and motivation. By reaching outside their own classroom, teachers can collaborate across STEM subjects to enrich learning and help students relate school science, technology and maths to the wider world.

Packed with ideas and practical details for teachers of STEM subjects, the new revised edition of this book:

■ considers what the STEM subjects contribute separately to the curriculum and how they relate to each other in the wider education of secondary school students;

■ describes and evaluates different curriculum models for STEM;

■ suggests ways in which a critical approach to the pedagogy of the classroom, laboratory and workshop can support and encourage all pupils to engage fully in STEM;

■ addresses the practicalities of introducing, organising and sustaining STEM-related activities in the secondary school;

■ looks to ways schools can manage and sustain STEM approaches in the long-term.

This new revised edition is essential reading for trainee and practising teachers, those engaged in further professional development and all who wish to make the learning of science, technology, engineering and mathematics an interesting, motivating and exciting experience for their students.
