|Abstract:||Modelling is a central aspect of the research process in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), which occurs in the cognitive context of an interactive balance between theory, experiment, and computation. The STEM learning processes should then also involve modelling in environments where there is a balanced interplay between theory, experiment, and computation. However, an adequate integration of computational themes in STEM high school and undergraduate university curricula remains to be achieved. In this chapter, we present an approach to embed computational modelling activities in the STEM learning processes which may be fruitfully adopted by curricula at secondary and introductory university levels, as well as be a valuable instrument for the professional development of teachers. To illustrate, we consider the example of physics.|
