Abstract

This study aims to design a cross-disciplinary science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) curriculum for the elementary school students in order to cultivate their STEM literacy. In this case study, 54 students from fifth-six grade of elementary school were included as research samples. The subject research course of "Arduino programming to assemble sensory-controlled works" was designed by seven teachers from various fields. The data collected included Arduino learning sheets, assemble sensory-controlled works, semi structured interviews, and t-test of pre-test and post-test of STEM literacy test. The conclusions were: 1). during the implementation, each group of students who created design Arduino programming and assembled sensory-controlled works learned to select appropriate materials, pedestal, and measuring. 2). After the teaching, elementary school students could improve STEM literacy including each component, the amount of experimental effect of each component of STEM literacy was medium to high.
