Parichart Prasertsang, Prasart Nuangchalerm

STEM education is now calling for integrative approach to worldwide schools. Effective instruction based on STEM education helps educators to design and make classroom much more effectiveness. This study aimed to investigate learning achievement of grade 8 students on measurement through STEM education practices. Forty grade 8 students were sampled by cluster random sampling and manipulated with measurement concepts through STEM education lesson plan. Achievement test and STEM education lesson plan were employed. One group pre-test post-test design was manipulated for experiment. Percentage, mean, standard deviation, and dependent t-test were used for data analysis. Students had post test score than those pretest score, and also posttest score higher than 75% of passing criteria with .05 level of statistical significance.
