Description

High school students are taking and excelling in more upper-level math and science classes. Even though students have the requisite preparation, more students are selecting biology-related majors and careers over other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. Integrating STEM in biology may help students see the relationships embedded in biology and help open new up new avenues for students. Surveys given to Methods I and II students reveal most are not familiar with STEM and STEM integration. With intervention, biology pre-service teachers transition their attitudes towards STEM and incorporate STEM activities in scenarios of their ideal lesson plans.
