STEM learning in regular and vocational high schools on the topic of scientific menu card fabrication
Only a small percentage of high school graduates in Indonesia successfully enter university and the rest returned to their community without life skill. Therefore, it is crucial to stimulate entrepreneurial practices among students by integrating with science and technology. This study was initiated by developing STEM students’ worksheet and subsequently tested the effectiveness for regular and vocational high school students. The worksheet was previously developed with R and D method following STEM syntax on the topic of scientific-menu-card fabrication. The STEM project related to student’s innovation on fabricating of scientific menu card that containing nutritional data and the efficacy of fruit juice beverage. Students respond to STEM learning process were collected based on product assessment sheets, and questionnaire. The vocational students have a higher score in design card which general high school students were better in menu card presentation. There was not significantly different score among students except on indicator of motivation to accomplish the project, entrepreneurship motivation, and vision broadening. Vocational students have better responds on these indicators. STEM worksheet was recommended by students & teachers to use as an alternative teaching material in entrepreneurial learning.
