Students’ Self-Confident in STEAM

  • Irene Alcantara Victoria National High School
Keywords: STEAM, Self-confident, Senior High School


Purpose of the study: know the teacher's response about student self-confidence in STEAM.

Methodology: This research uses a micro-ethnographic type case study approach. Case study research is intended to study intensively about STEAM-based physics learning and whether it has a relationship with self-confident.

Main Findings: students will have good self-confidence if a teacher provides good facilities, support, and facilities.

Applications of this study: very useful for teachers in implementing STEAM-based learning to improve self-confidence.

Novelty/Originality of this study: This study describes the STEM-based physics learning experience by growing self-confidence.
