Abstract

Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education provides an enabling environment for the development of the strategic human capital. STEM enhance the ability to evaluate and analyze problems (critical thinking), create new and innovative ideas (creative thinking) and imagine possible solutions using rational judgment (reasoning). In order to fulfill the nation's inspiration of being a contributor to the scientific and technological civilization, there is a need to develop a model of high quality STEM education at schools. The objective of this pilot study is to investigate the current situation of support systems, that is, one of the elements in the implementation of STEM education. From a survey and factor analytic study, we identified eight underlying components of concerns that comprise the current situation of the role of support systems in delivering STEM subjects.
