This qualitative research aimed to study way to use the learning approach through engineering design process following stem education in learning the topic of acid base to enhance 11th grade students’ creativity and innovation skill. The research participants were 49 students in 11th grade of regional science high school in the lower northern zone. The research methodology was the classroom action research comprising of three action spiral loops and took totally 15 hours in this study. The instruments used in the research were 1) three lesson plans based on engineering design process in the topic of acid base,
2) activity/work sheets, 3) reflective learning journals, 4) work evaluation form, and 5) work sheet evaluation form. Data were analyzed by using content analysis technique and data creditability checked by triangulation method. The results revealed that 1) the way to use the learning approach through engineering design process following stem education in learning the topic of acid base composed of eight steps as follow: 1) engaging, 2) problem identification, 3) related information search, 4) solution design 5) planning and development, 6) testing, evaluation and design improvement, 7) presentation, and 8) summary and evaluation. Furthermore, the teacher should emphasize on review students’ fundamental knowledge required for designing work piece and solving problems, selecting problem situation in real life that lead students to apply various designing work piece, and encouraging students to regularly do activities. And 2) Most of students were at high level of creativity and innovation skill. For subscale of creativity and innovation skill, most of students were at high level in fluency and elaboration. While students were in moderate level in flexibility and originality.
