The SHS-STEM curriculum is intended to help students become more proficient in applying science, technology, engineering, and math principles to a variety of challenges in their communities and throughout the globe. Moreover, it aims to prepare students for college-level study so they may go on to become future scientists, technologists, engineers, mathematicians, programmers, science instructors, and other professions (Estonanto, 2017). The Latin word "currere," which means "to run," is the root of the English term "curriculum," which is used to describe how a student runs to accomplish certain educational objectives. Today's curricula focus on a child's whole experiences with learning activities and experiments.
In the context of science, it refers to the learned information on science instruction that is provided within a specified period in the classroom. Consequently, learning experiences through diverse activities within or outside of school grounds, either official or informal education, are the focus of the science curriculum. The curriculum is a summary of the lessons and subjects taught in a class over a certain amount of time. Textbooks, a teachers' manual, and technology-based tools are all part of the science curriculum, and they are all created by teachers to help students perform better. A wide range of instructional tactics and techniques are available to effective science teachers in order to create successful learners. To improve the performance of scientific students, Filipino teachers have become adaptable and constantly have special ideas and approaches to make science education entertaining and fascinating. Professional development is one approach to remain up to date on current information and practices because education is continuously evolving. To provide students with solid scientific instruction and provide them the opportunity to learn new things, teachers must continue their professional development.
The implementation of STEM in Senior High School is founded on John Dewey's 1938 book on Education and Experience. According to this view, students enrolled in school hoping to learn how to apply concepts and ideas to their daily life. Learning involves not only intellectual improvement but also a person's whole development. This is an essential instrument for system development so that future generations can have fulfilling educational experiences. He stated that educators need to have a wider viewpoint and that there is a new movement for teachers of education. The past experiences that different people have had that have led to wider input are what have contributed to the development of education as it is now.
