Duban, Nil; Aydogdu, Bülent; Kolsuz, Selçuk – Journal of STEM Arts, Crafts, and Constructions, 2018
The main aim of the current research was to fill the absence of STEAM activities for primary school students in Turkey. Accordingly, a study in which STEAM activities were implemented was conducted with the primary school students. There were four activities during STEAM implementation. The activities were these: Students recognized circuit…

Kangas, Timothy C.; Cook, Michelle; Rule, Audrey C. – Journal of STEM Arts, Crafts, and Constructions, 2017
Gifted students, because of their advanced development compared to peers, have emotional needs that require differentiated education programs. Asynchronous social and emotional development of gifted students often leads to identity issues. Cinematherapy can be used to help gifted students explore their identities through analysis of the actions of…
