42 schools offer STEM ALP to their Secondary One students

More than 40 secondary schools have introduced an applied learning programme to help secondary one students learn better by linking theory with practice. 

It's called the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Applied Learning Programme or STEM ALP. 

The Education Ministry says the programme helps students apply their knowledge and skills in science, mathematics and technology to solve real-world problems. 

This it says helps the students appreciate the relevance and value of what they learn in the curriculum and develop an interest in learning. 

The ministry has partnered a unit of the Science Centre to work with teachers to co-develop STEM lessons for the students. 

There are plans to expand the programme to half of the secondary schools here by 2017. 

The Applied Learning Programme is one of the two programmes that was announced last year by the Education Ministry to promote all-rounded development of students.
