from THE Journal
When it comes to STEM education, high school students in the United States want to see changes made to teaching methods and more access to resources outside of the classroom, according to a national survey conducted by the Amgen Foundation and Change the Equation. The results released in the report "Students on STEM: More Hands-on, Real-World Experiences" show that students want more tangible learning opportunities. Respondents said that common teaching methods, such as teaching from the textbook, are less engaging than hands-on learning methods.
