The objectives of the action research were 1) to study the teaching methodology using STEM education through the engineering design process to promote Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) competencies on plant response and 2) to study the results of the promotion for CPS competencies. The participants were 35 Mathayomsuksa 5 students studying in science and mathematics program of the first semester, academic year 2020. The research was carried out by using 3-cycle research processes. The tools consisted of lesson plans, classroom reflection forms, CPS competency observation forms, and the CPS competency assessment. The data were collected and analyzed by Content analysis. The method of triangulation was used for data credibility.

The results of the research are as follows: 1) each step of learning activities has to emphasize on the roles of members, the equality in group discussion, and a huge amount of assignment with the limited time. The works designed and created by the students were evaluated to find the effectiveness of their problem solving. Learning in the assigned situation, every member was able to exchange their ideas to find the best way to solve the problem. The students’ duties in the group were based on their abilities. 2) The learning management was able to promote students’ CPS competencies at a high level.
