The implementation of the K to 12 Basic Education Curriculum in the Philippines is a pivotal reform aimed at enhancing students' learning competencies and equipping them with the 21st-century skills necessary for the rapidly changing global landscape. This study explores the attitudes, knowledge, and application of STEM education among science teachers. It focuses on their readiness to embrace STEM methodologies, understanding STEM concepts, and efforts to integrate STEM into their teaching practices. The research employs a mixed-methods approach, combining quantitative and qualitative data from 21 science teachers in Iligan City. The findings reveal positive attitudes towards STEM, with variations in knowledge levels, particularly in understanding the nature and advantages of STEM education. Despite challenges in STEM application, teachers actively incorporate STEM methodologies, highlighting the need for tailored training, improved technology access, and comprehensive teaching resources. The study underscores the commitment of science teachers to enhance their teaching practices and recommends the development of readily available STEM materials to support effective implementation.
