In recent years, "STEM education" and "STEAM education" have become hot topics in the global education community, with each representing science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), and STEAM incorporating art (where "A" stands for Art) into the STEM foundation. STEM education emphasizes knowledge and skills in technology and mathematics, while STEAM further integrates art, advocating for innovation and comprehensive thinking. This shift is reflected not only in educational policies but also in teaching practices at all levels of schools. For example, the Hong Kong government has been promoting STEM since the 2015/16 academic year and proposed to further promote STEAM education in 2022, showing its emphasis on nurturing students with well-rounded capabilities.
The core of both educational models lies in promoting students' problem-solving abilities, innovative thinking, and practical skills through interdisciplinary learning. From academic fields, learning methods, to teaching focuses, STEM and STEAM each have their emphases, together offering students a rich and diverse learning experience. This not only helps prepare students for the future job market but also enhances personal value. As education evolves, STEM and STEAM education have become important tools for helping students build their futures and enhance their competitiveness in the workplace. This also raises a question worth exploring: in a rapidly changing world, how should we effectively integrate and apply these two educational models to maximize students' learning outcomes and personal development?
