Abstract

The objectives of this research were 1) to compare academic achievement in chemistry before and after taught with STEM education and 2) to compare problem solving ability of students before and after taught with STEM education. The sample of this study was 44 Mathayom Suksa 4/1 students in the first semester of the academic year 2019 at The Demonstration School of Valaya Alongkorn Rajabhat University Under the Royal Patronage. A duration of implementing SETM education was 12 hours. The research instruments were STEM education-based learning plan with inquisitive learning on Compound Separation, academic achievement test, problem-solving ability test, field note and interview. This study used one-group pretest - posttest design. Data were analyzed by determining mean, standard deviation, and Independent Sample
T-Test.


The results of this research: 1) after taught with STEM education, the sample’s posttest score was higher than pretest score with a statistical significance level of .01. And 2) after taught with STEM education, the sample’s academic achievement in chemistry and problem-solving ability was higher than before with a statistical significance level of .01.
