The development of science and technology was required students have all skills needed in the 21st century and be able to compete globally. One of which the skills is creative thnking skills. GCI (Global Creativity Index) and PISA study shows that the creative thinking skills of students in Indonesia were still low. One approach to learning that could be used to improve the skills of creative thinking is a STEM learning approach. It is effective if supported by teaching materials in the form of the handouts. The purpose of this study was to examine the effectiveness of STEM-integrated handouts to improve students’ creative thinking skills in biotechnology material. The design of this study was a quasi experimental design in the form of nonequivalent pre-post control group design. The subject were 70 students Nine Graders Junior High School in Bandar Lampung, Indonesia with samples consisted of 35 students used STEM integrated handouts in experiment class and 35 students used text book in control class. Data were collected by test instrument for measuring creative thinking skills. The 10-item were applied as pretest and posttest and the data analysis used N-Gain. The results of the effectiveness test known that the value of N-gain in experiment class (0,64) was higher than control class (0,40). N-Gain of fluency (0,50) and originality (0,66) were medium category, while flexibility (0,74) and elaboration (0,74) were high category. It could be concluded that the STEM-integrated handouts has been effective to improve students' creative thinking skills in biotechnology material.
