Institutional Preparedness for the Integration of Stem / Steam Learning in Punjab

Onika Puri


Abstract: Education that takes a STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) approach is gaining popularity on a global scale because it places a significant emphasis on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. STEM stands for the acronym Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. The goal of the study that will be presented in this article is to determine the degree to which educational institutions in Punjab are prepared to include STEM and STEAM education into their respective curriculum. In order to gather data for the study, questionnaires and interviews were held at a variety of educational institutions located all around the province of Punjab. The majority of the questions that were asked were on the ease with which different resources could be accessed, the level of education that was obtained by the teachers, and the condition of the infrastructure. According to the findings of the research, even though there is a growing interest in STEM and STEAM education in Punjab, there is still an inadequate supply of resources, inadequate teacher training, and inadequate infrastructure to support it. This is the case despite the fact that there is a growing interest in the subject. Despite the fact that there is a rising interest in the topic, this is the situation as it now stands. Following the recommendations made in the study report, the government of Punjab and educational institutions should make investments in resources, teacher training, and infrastructure to strengthen institutional preparedness for the combination of STEM and STEAM education. These investments should be made in order to strengthen institutional preparedness for the combination of STEM and STEAM education. In order to accomplish the goal of this piece of writing, a research study will be conducted to investigate the extent to which educational institutions in the state of Punjab are prepared to embrace STEM and STEAM curriculums. The research was carried out by disseminating questionnaires and carrying out interviews at educational institutions that might be found all across the state of Punjab. The questions that were asked brought up a number of important topics, including the preparation of teachers, the accessibility of resources, and the state of the infrastructure. Even though there is a rising interest in STEM/STEAM education in Punjab, the findings show that there is a lack of resources, teacher training, and infrastructure to support its implementation. This is despite the fact that there is a growing interest in such education. This is the situation despite the fact that there is a growing demand in education of this kind. This is still the case despite the fact that there is a growing need for education of this sort. In order to increase institutional preparation for the combination of STEM and STEAM learning, it is recommended in the report of the research that the government and educational institutions make investments in resources, teacher training, and infrastructure. If educational institutions in Punjab behave in this manner, they will be able to better provide their students with the relevant skills for their future and better prepare their students for the problems that will be faced in the 21st century.
