Goovaerts, Leen; De Cock, Mieke; Struyven, Katrien; Dehaene, Wim – European Journal of STEM Education, 2019
High level, abstract engineering thinking and design is a subject that is hardly addressed in current curricula for secondary education. This is contradictory to the increasing need for more in depth STEM education in secondary schools dictated by the evolution of our society towards an ever more STEM based information society. In this paper an…
