Banks’s typology discusses 4 approaches for integrating multicultural content into the school and university curriculum. In order to support the development of multicultural science...
The purpose of this qualitative study was to investigate the conceptions of integrated STEM education held by in-service science teachers through the use of Photo Elicitation Interviews (PEIs) and to examine how, if at all, those conceptions were reflected in teacher-created integrated STEM curricula that include an engineering design challenge.
