In this one day workshop, STEM integration in implementing the 2013 curriculum is packed become a short training for 8 lesson hours. During these 8 lesson hours, the participants learned about STEM; started from the philosophy and characteristics, also Engineering Design Process (EDP) which is the characteristics of STEM.
