Abstract
This study aims to determine the effect of applying the project-based learning in the STEM education setting to enhance students’ higher-order thinking skills. The design used in this study is a non-equivalent (pretest-posttest) controlled group design. The population of this research is the 10th-grade students of Mathematics and Natural Sciences State High School in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. The research sample technique was an accidental sampling technique. The experimental group was guided to do project-based learning in the STEM education setting, while the controlled group was addressed to scientific learning. Two instruments used were multiple-choice questions to measure the higher-order thinking skills score, and questionnaires to collect the scientific attitudes data. The statistical analysis was d paired-sample T-Test. The learning effectiveness was interpreted from the N-Gain score. The result shows that there is a positive impact on the tudents’ higher-order thinking skills. The other finding was that prior knowledge and scientific attitude contributed to increasing higher-order thinking skills. The impact of the finding is the possibility of this model contributing to physics learning, especially on the students’ higher-order thinking skills.
