Education for Science and Math – STEM Framework

Science Education using STEM as a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications.

While it is almost impossible to list every discipline, some common areas include  aerospace, astrophysics, astronomy, biochemistry, biomechanics, chemistry, biomimicry , mathematical biology, nanotechnology, neurobiology, nuclear physics, physics, and robotics, among many, many others. As evidenced by the vast variety of disciplines, it is clear that the Science Education fields affect virtually every component of our everyday lives.

This new science education approach is providing the educational system with more tools for quality education, integrating knowledge and methods from different disciplines, using a real synthesis of approaches and principles that should be especially prominent:  Interdisciplinary, creativity and Relevance to reality.

The course designed by The Aharon Ofri MASHAV International Educational Training Center is aimed at directors of education departments in education Ministries, Principals and supervisors of  primary and secondary schools; Educational staff at schools Training institutions, whose responsibilities involve the allocation of resources and development of educational policies.

-Getting acquaint the participants with new concepts, methods, and tools regarding sciences education 

-Adapting the teaching environment to new  pedagogical approaches 

-Presenting various educational projects and curriculum models used in Israel 

-Developing Math-thinking skills through games and practices

-Elaborating on the concept of Science in education

-Getting acquaint participants with a variety of learning methods and applications

-Sharing and exchange experiences and knowledge gained in the participants’ countries of origin
