Abstract

STEM integration is not a new idea, yet it is now taking a foothold in education around the globe. There are many different ways in which STEM integration is conceptualized and defined. The manner in which subjects of STEM are included or not, how concepts from other non-STEM disciplines are added, the background of the instructor, the model in the school, and the purpose of the learning within a STEM integration setting all make a difference in how STEM integration is defined and used. This chapter provides an overview of the perspectives in literature regarding STEM integration.
