Prendergast, Mark; Murphy, Colette; O'Neill, Arlene; Roche, Joseph – European Journal of STEM Education, 2018
Concerns are growing in many countries, including Ireland, regarding an inadequate number of graduates to meet workforce needs in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. These graduate deficiencies are the result of low student uptake of STEM subjects and courses at post-primary and tertiary level education. Low uptake is…

van der Graaf, Joep; Segers, Eliane; Verhoeven, Ludo – European Journal of STEM Education, 2018
In the present study we investigated experimentation abilities of children with learning problems in early childhood education, i.e. kindergarten (4-6 years old). An essential part of science education is learning via the scientific method, of which experimentation is the central component. We studied experimentation abilities in 28 kindergartners…

Sumpter, Lovisa; Hedefalk, Maria – European Journal of STEM Education, 2018
The aim of this paper is to study teachers' roles in preschool children's mathematical reasoning using analysis of epistemological moves. Three moves were identified: instructional moves, confirming move and a new move, concluding move. There were no generative moves encouraging the children to produce different arguments for choice of strategy or…

Furner, Joseph M. – European Journal of STEM Education, 2018
Today it is critical to excite young people about mathematics in our high-tech STEM world we live in. Math teachers today need to embolden students to be confident in their ability to solve problems, to think and use their imaginations, to understand mathematical concepts, to be creative, and to see math as a human endeavor. The author feels that…

Sheehan, Kelly Jean; Hightower, Brianna; Lauricella, Alexis R.; Wartella, Ellen – European Journal of STEM Education, 2018
Children's learning of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) is important for their achievement in related fields. Before formal schooling, families can expose children to STEM by sharing knowledge and influencing children's use of learning tools, including media. We investigated whether parent attitudes towards STEM media and…
