With those objectives in mind, APU emphasizes the importance of STEM education from elementary to high school. This style of educational trend that combines science, technology, engineering and mathematics is very popular in many developed countries, especially in the United States.
Through the STEM program, teachers actively assign students to practical projects rather than mere boring theoretical exercises. In other words, this creative education method allows students to play the roles of inventors doing scientific research. Students can freely choose their own project by consulting with their teachers, then work on their projects within 2 – 3 months until they’ve finished. Some APU students’ innovative projects have even been chosen to attend STEMCON 2019. This is a series of STEM conferences and exhibitions that attracts representatives from over 37 universities and colleges alongside scientific and educational institutions from 6 countries in the world.
