Abstract

The purpose of this study is to conduct a cross-case analysis method to investigate K-12 international teachers' views on integrated STEM and computational thinking practices via World MOON Project. The World MOON Project is an international STEM (i-STEM) collaborative project that thousands of international K-12 students and hundreds of teachers have been exposed to, as well as various researchers and practitioners around the world, such as, from Australia, Brazil, China, South Africa, and the United States. In this project, students conveyed their observed patterns in an essay format and exchange with their peers. This allows students to investigate how their observed patterns result are the same or different. More importantly, this project carries an important role for international collaboration in aerospace and STEM education by relating to the specific curricular goals, such as, including aerospace, inquiry skills, nature of STEM.
