How can STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects be made more fun for young...
By showing their relevancy to the real world and by showing concrete examples, like physics experiments and really cool technological gadgets. You can explain how it works and why certain things happen.
Maths will be the most difficult to make attractive (unless they are already interested in it) but for the other subjects there are many things you can do. Search on the internet for funny physics experiments and see if you can do them as well.
My guess is if schools could reduce the amount of students per class, then the teachers could invest more time with the students, the way things are, sometimes 20 students per class its hard for every student to have that one to one that they might need from time to time.
Also I believe when a student is not enjoying the subject allot of the time they simply haven’t grasped the subject basics and if this occurs undetected then its just going to be a miserable lesson that they want to hurry up and finish.
More time with each individual where possible and note when a young adult knows they understand a subject and get it right, they are the ones smiling in the lesson, the other young adults that look daunted and don’t want to participate are the ones that need to be focused on and given the time to help them understand the subject.
We could start by not teaching everything out of a basal textbook!!!
Some of the new computer programs make the teaching of science, math, and technology loads more enjoyable. Personally, my team has SMART boards in our classrooms, and that makes the experience more interactive for our students. I'd love to see Geometry taught on a SMARTboard.
Oh, and dosters has this great chemistry hub I just read today.
Supporting pictures and field trips to labs outside the places of study and non-traditional explanation of the sciences will not get bored T

How can science lessons be made more interesting/fun?Obviously practical work is a must, but what else can turn a good lesson into an outstanding one (from the point of view of the pupils)?

Why are so few students entering STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) careers?How do you feel this affects our nations future as a world leader?

What do you think that should be taught as "core" subjects in school ?Many states are requiring that cursive writing and multiplication tables be taught, along with reading, science and Home Economics. What do you think that should be required in today's computerized world?

"We will always have STEM with us. Some things will drop out of the public eye and will go away, but there will always be science, engineering, and technology. And there will always, always be mathematics." -- Katherine Johnson, calculated Apollo Space Missions by Hand
