and employ adaptable approaches to their instructional styles. This will help get the most out of

their students. STEM teaching is not all about teaching and correcting students when they are

wrong, an ideal STEM learning environment is all about asking questions and encouraging

independent thinking among the students. In STEM, student’s failure encourages students to

solve problems and is part of their growth academically.

Project-based learning is an effective method to use in STEM teaching since it

encourages students to learn and acquire skills by giving them practical tasks. This enables them

to work for certain periods of time and come up with solutions and inquiries about a project. As

an educator, one has to facilitate the project and encourage the students to take full control of

their projects without interfering (Rai, 2017). Building a model of a bridge or developing an app

are some of the example of projects. Choosing learning methods depends on many aspects,

availability of required materials, the age of the students being taught and the time planned for a

particular lesson.

In all the STEM subjects, group discussion is Very important, as a practicing teacher

grouping students in groups of four in each group. Afterwards giving them assignments

regarding the project to be done, this is a good way to assess the students and keeping them in

focus. After the completion of the project, an exam is given to the students to evaluate what the

students learned in that particular project. In STEM learning, thinking and problem solving is the

key, therefore grouping students into small discussion groups will work best, and they are able to

share new ideas on how to work on the project and how to solve the problem.

their hands, whether through designing, creating, constructing and any other inventive or any

other discovery process (Ibanez et al., 2018). After interacting with student while helping my

mentor, using discussion questions to engage students and helping them remain focus is an

effective way in STEM learning, this is my preferred strategy because of its effectiveness.

Implementing hand on in the lessons given worked efficiently, this was made easier by providing

students with library materials. These materials will make STEM learning easier.
