What is STEM Education?
It stands for Science, Technology,
Engineering, and Mathematics.
It is designed to create curriculum
through integrating inter-disciplines or
meta-discipline through problem-
solving, discovery, experiential,
exploratory learning, and require
students to actively engage a situation
in order to find its solution.
What is STEMSS Education?
   The main purpose of STEM education is to
   enhance human conditions.
   All the disciplines cannot stand along outside
   of human societies (AAAS 1990, p. 8).
   The integration of STEM and the Social Science
   disciplines is pivotal to ensure the long lasting
   improvements for human societies.
   A broader and interconnected global perspective
   tie STEM and the Social Sciences together to
   bring forth high quality of work force.
   So, STEMSS represents for Science,
   Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics,
   and Social Science.

What do you see in the
following pictures?
What can we do to
decrease illusions and
    misjudgment?
Take a look at another
group of pictures !!
Activity#1-Brainstorming
Use simple technology
to increase our communications and
collaboration
What are the issues and potential
solutions to what you saw?

Try Bubbl to collect thoughts.

Propose potential Solutions Via
        STEMSS Approach
What are the main reasons that        What are the potential solutions to
cause Poverty/Social Inequality?      decrease the severity of the problems?



                        Poverty/
                    Social Inequality

                 (Domestic and Global)
       What are the roles of Science, Technology, Engineering,
       Mathematics and social science (such as sociology,
       psychology, political science, diversity, demography…etc.)
       to help solve the problems?
Activities #2 Open the
Critical Thinking Mind-Eyes
Critical Thinking! How to do it?
 thinking that does not blindly accept
 arguments and conclusions
  1. examines assumptions
  2. discerns hidden values
  3. evaluates evidence
  4. assesses conclusions
1. Functional mind-eyes:
A system of interrelated parts that is
relatively stable because each part
has a particular function in society
as a whole.
    Manifest functional mind-eye;
    Latent functional mind-eye;

    Dysfunctional mind-eye.
2. Conflict Mind-Eyes
Open many smaller miraculous
mind- eyes to see social problems
based on Social inequality
(power/money, resources, opportunities,
privileges…etc.).
Such as opening the miracle eye to see
Race/ethnicity issues (Genetics, history, and
biology etc. will involve)
Such as Such as opening the miracle eye to see
