Teachers in STEM (Science + Technology + Engineering + Mathematics = Science + Technology + Engineering + Mathematics) have a unique role in motivating and attracting their students' professions for which science, technology, engineering or mathematics degrees are required. However, STEM teachers do not acquire such interdisciplinary, interrelated in-depth knowledge sufficient for education during their training. Interdisciplinary STEM education requires teachers to have a good understanding and understanding of the concept of integrated STEM education (C. C. Johnson et al., 2020). In primary and secondary education, teachers in science and mathematics should be trained interdisciplinary in parallel with discipline-specific pedagogical studies. (Holik - Sanda, 2021).
