Abstract

This paper discusses the rise of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education reform in the United States and Asia. As shown in the results of international tests such as PISA and TIMMS, secondary school students in Asia do better than their counterparts in the U.S. Nevertheless, it is also true that U.S. universities, particularly graduate schools have more strengths than Asian universities. The rise of the knowledge society is raising a demand for STEM workforce, and its solid production is becoming imperative in each region for the pursuit of economic development. The paper picks up active learning as a new culture of education regardless of their educational differences. It argues that it is a great means not only to reform STEM education but also to create innovation.
