In this study, 30 hours of training were given to 15 science teachers to realize STEM integration in science courses and it was aimed to examine the problem statement developed by science teachers who have STEM education. The model of the research is a holistic case study. The study group of the research is composed of 15 science teachers. Problem statements (documents) that the teachers developed constitute the primary data source of this research. Field notes were used as supporting data sources. Data analyzed by descriptive (documents, field notes) and content analysis (field notes) techniques. It has been determined that the engineering design problem, prepared by only one teacher, can be accepted in all elements, and that it is capable of integrating mathematics and technology disciplines and achieving learning outcome in science courses. It has been found that none of the problem statements prepared by problem-based learning to perform STEM-focused activities in science courses are inappropriate for all elements. 

Bu araştırmada fen derslerinde STEM entegrasyonu gerçekleştirmek üzere 15 Fen bilimleri öğretmenine 30 saatlik eğitim verilmiş ve eğitim sonunda STEM eğitim anlayışına yönelik bu programa katılmış fen bilimleri öğretmenlerinin ortaya koydukları problem durumlarının incelenmesi amaçlanmıştır. Araştırmanın modeli bütüncül tek durum çalışmasıdır. Araştırmanın çalışma grubunu 15 fen bilimleri öğretmeni oluşturmaktadır. Eğitim sonunda katılımcılardan fen bilimleri dersini STEM odaklı etkinlik kapsamında planlamak üzere programdan kendilerinin seçecekleri kazanımlar ile ilgili bireysel olarak problem durumları oluşturması istenmiştir. Öğretmenlerin oluşturdukları problem durumlarına yönelik dokümanlar ve öğretmenler problem durumlarını oluştururken araştırmacılar tarafından tutulan alan notları araştırmanın veri kaynağıdır. Dokümanlar betimsel analiz, alan notları ise içerik analizi ve betimsel analiz teknikleri ile analiz edilmiştir. Öğretmenlerin çoğunlukla problem dayalı öğrenme ekseninde yürütülecek problem durumları planlamayı tercih ettikleri tespit edilmiştir. Mühendislik tasarım problemi hazırlayan öğretmenlerden sadece birinin tüm unsurlar bakımından kabul edilebilir problem durumu oluşturabildiği tespit edilmiştir. Fen derslerinde STEM odaklı uygulamalar gerçekleştirmek üzere probleme dayalı uygulamalar planlayan öğretmenler tüm ölçütleri karşılayacak problem durumu oluşturamamışlardır.
