Summary: We introduce our concept of a design based research study on the implementation of a new course STEM. The idea is to create a 3years course for students of lower secondary level that integrales several STEM subjects, e.g. mathematics, computer science and biology. The subjects are not taught separately but are working on the same overall topic, seeing through the eyes and using the techniques of the respective discipline. After motivation and introduction of our concept we explain the realworld problem for the current round of the study and outline somefirst results and experiences.
