Increasing SDGs awareness and motivations in Japanese high school students through Science-Technology-Engineering-Arts-Math (STEAM) Based Design Education

LOH Wei Leong, Assistant Professor
Department of Environmental Design, Faculty of Design

Our team have conducted the first pilot SDGs design program with Fukusho High School in 2019.The pilot test provided inputs for us to develop a new set of teaching and learning tools and modified the education methodology for 2nd phase pilot test. The 2nd phase pilot test will be conducted in Fukusho High School between August and October 2020. The key purpose for this research is to develop students’ ability in design thinking to integrate knowledge and skills from science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) to explore and experiment a wide range of solutions to solve SDGs related problems.

Students in Fukusho High School worked in groups to identify SDGs related problem in their community and conceptualized solutions.
