Abstract The curriculum is the carrier of teaching activities and an important measure for cultivating national scientific and technological talents. STEAM education originated from the United States, as an interdisciplinary and integrated education mode to cultivate comprehensive talents in the future, aims at improving students' scientific and humanistic literacy, and emphasizes the cultivation of students' lifelong learning awareness, problem-solving ability, scientific inquiry ability and innovation ability. Therefore, designing a STEAM Curriculum with inquiry and engineering orientation has important guiding significance for China's basic education reform. This paper takes the "Manufacturing of Hydraulic Manipulator" as the project theme, and based on the 6E learning by design model, discusses the design of STEAM physics curriculum. [More...]

Abstract A new method is proposed in (Ivković, Marković, Ivković, & Cvetanović, 2017) to measure the equivalent series resistance (ESR) and the inductance of a coil at low frequencies. However, a special phenomenon has appeared at high frequencies. It is found that the intercept has appeared and the measured inductance value had a large deviation from its nominal value. According to the analysis of result, an amended method is proposed in this paper. The inductance value should be amended according to the linear relation between the measured value and the nominal value.  [More...]

Abstract Embodied cognition is a theory that studies the features of cognition that are formed through the experience of one’s body in a specific environment. It unveils that the body, via action and gestures, can be a powerful tool to enhance understanding and learning. In this paper, the theory of embodied cognition is introduced, and incorporated to the online elementary science curriculum, where the teachers are encouraged to involve physical interactions and participations during teaching, so that the students can better understand and master the scientific concepts. This new instructional method is shown to improve students’ scientific literacy and the quality of online teaching. [More...]
