STEM Experiences in Education

Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education is the next step in order to solve some of the social and environmental problems of our world. All of them have a great weight for the worldwide economy. The objective of this Topical Collection is to improve the pedagogies of teachers and professors in STEM issues in order to provide society of the necessary skills needed for its future technological jobs. Secondly, this Topical Collection can solve some of the gender problems in STEM careers, helping girls to become future women to be involved in the future scientific and technical society. Finally, the last objectives are to help nations to define their theoretical framework of STEM education and to define several practical styles of this type of education in different levels (kindergarten, primary schools, high schools and universities).
