The study aimed at investigating the attitudes of university students towards science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM) approach. The participants of the study consist of (60) students who were studying in bachelor and master degree, they trained in the center of training at the university, the participants acquiring the skills of STEM approach by using the WeDo2.0 application, they received knowledge and skills of STEM approach. The tool of the study was questionnaire which was validity and reliability verified. Results of the study showed that positive student attitudes toward using STEM approach Reached 86.4%. Each of the following scores is ranked as descending order: desire to apply strategy (87.4 %%), collaboration and communication (86.4%), thinking and problem solving (86%), motivation and problem solving (86%). There was no statistical significance difference between the variable type degree of study (master/bachelor) as well as the nature of employment in terms of whether the learner was either an employee or non-employee.
