Abstract


Through the author's two-semester extra-curricular STEM education activities for elementary school pupils, this article introduces the preliminary preparation content, the development process, and the summary and experience of this activity. Through a detailed introduction to one of the activities about the production of hydraulic excavators, the application of STEM in the activities was explained. It shows that pupils participating in extra-curricular STEM activities not only improve themselves in terms of confidence, interest, ability, and discipline, but also help their parents balance work and family.
