Abstract

STEM education is a direction chosen by the Ministry of Education and Training in recent years to train learners with the necessary skills of the 21st century, which helps learners meet the increasing demand for human resources. In the 4.0 era, the problem of developing students’ abilities is an urgent matter. The competencies that students need to develop include general and specialized competencies. In the specialized competencies, the capacity to practice has a particularly important role. Developing the capacity to practise natural sciences of 8th graders is an urgent issue to improve the quality of current education in Vietnam to meet the reform’s requirements of the general education program.
