Abstract

This research aimed to synthesis of learning steps of STEM education to enhance creative problem solving competency. Content analysis, in-depth interview, focus group and analytic description were used as research methodology. Target group for in-depth interview were 42 stakeholders. Target group for focus group were 10 experts. Moreover, target group for analytic description of learning activities were 34 ninth-grade students. Research instruments are document analysis form, fieldnotes of in-depth interviews and focus group, VDO and photo cameras. Data were collected in 2019 academic year. Data were analyzed by content analysis and analytic description. Research result show that there are 5 steps for learning STEM education to enhance creative problem solving competency, include
1) problem finding, 2) idea finding, 3) solution finding, 4) problem solving, and 5) knowledge finding. These steps encourage students to able to create new knowledge, develop creative problem solving skill, and attribute in solving complex real world problem.
