Abstract

An innovative device which was embedded with some effective pedagogies in its design was adopted for four different types of learning activities, namely hands-on STEM activity, field trip, scientific investigation and project work. Over 150 secondary science/physics/chemistry /biology, computer, geography students and 40 teachers in 9 schools and 132 university students (in Hong Kong and Mainland China) participated in some of those learning activities and returned questionnaires to provide their responses on their views and attitudes towards those learning activities as well as their learning difficulties and suggestions for improvement. It was found that the hands-on assembling STEM activity was most favoured by the participants while the scientific investigation was least effective but they were all generally positive and favorable.
