Abstract

In the 21st century, the innovation industries are considered as the main focus. Talents with innovation capability and creative problem-solving skills have become the greatest demand nowadays. Therefore, cultivating more diverse talents with a better education approach is essential. STEM education is the well-known creative education approach that has been adopted currently. Thus, this study provided the background of STEM education in Hong Kong, followed by identifying the problems of the current creative education. It also proposed a revolutionary education change by integrating product design and computer-aided design (CAD) education into STEM Maker education. The suggestions and recommendations of developing new learning material and lessons have been analysed for the educators. New learning material and online learning system concepts have been designed as well. The new design can satisfy the needs of the students and teachers, promoting and enhancing the current creative education by tackling the issues in each aspect.
