The effect of STEM education on the academic success and social-emotional development of gifted students.
STEM education, accepted as one of the most significant educational movements of recent years, is an approach that aims to educate students, including gifted students, in the disciplines of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics as a whole. This research aims to provide a general framework of the effect of STEM education on academic success and social-emotional development using the meta-analysis and metasynthesis method related to the work done for gifted students. In this study, a total of 62 studies between 2010 and 2020 have been examined. The findings are presented under specific themes by going through the stages included in the meta-synthesis and metaanalysis research method. In combining and analyzing the results of research on STEM education in the field of gifted education, the view that STEM education positively affects gifted students' academic and social-emotional development has once again been proven through quantitative and qualitative data.
