There is growing global attention and concern about climate change and the link to human activity on the earth than natural factors. One way to address this problem is to increase the public’s knowledge and actions to address this global emergency through climate education. This study investigated secondary school science teachers’ views on climate change and how it is framed or taught within secondary science curricula.

It is known that female teachers tend to have less confidence to teach ball games, track and field, and gymnastics in Japan (OYA and Shinbo, 2016). In former research we found that the STEAM learning program of “Teaching Throwing” was useful for female university students’ conceptual change about “throwing” (Ohnuki, 2021). In this research, we analyzed their conceptual changes in a STEAM program “Teaching Jumping” developed by Ishizawa et al. (2021).

STEM Camp, as a short-term informal STEM learning project, has been demonstrated to positively impact students' academic achievement and knowledge skills. However, there are few studies concerning whether informal STEM learning is appropriate for rural youth. This research aimed to investigate the impacts of STEM education on rural students with different levels (high, medium and low) of self-efficacy and computational thinking skills.
