Istanbul Aydın University (IAU) and The International Council of Associations for Science Education (ICASE) organize the World Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Education Conference.
The term “STEM education” refers to the teaching and learning associated with the disciplines of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, and typically includes educational activities across all grade levels and in both formal and informal classroom settings. The integration of STEM disciplines aims to develop the “four C’s” of the 21st century skills: creativity, critical thinking, collaboration and communication.
The primary goal of STEM education is to prepare students for their future lives and careers, and to create problem solvers that are prepared to engage in design and production. Therefore, its culture of inquiry leads to important contributions to the country’s economic developments since students will be better prepared to use high-level critical thinking skills in innovative ways.
