Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education is currently segregated by discipline. Recent efforts to improve instruction in disciplines emphasise a turn toward practice, positioning students to participate in approximations to some of the epistemological means by which STEM professionals generate and revise knowledge.
