The project research on the STEAM course could cultivate the STEAM literacy of elementary students. This study adopted a project-based learning in a class of six grade in an elementary school with 28 students as research subjects. Three collaborative teachers in different fields using 6E teaching strategy to guide students carry out project research on ＂simplest electric train (s-e-train)＂, including knowing s-e-train, choosing materials to make s-e-train, s-e-train competitions, designing project with s-e-train, etc. The collected data included the learning sheets, design blueprints, project works, student' interviews, teachers' reflections, etc., for encoding, classification and interpretation. The results indicated that: 1) each group of students explored the s-e-train and understood the scientific principle of driving the s-e-train, which produced the magnetic effect of electric current from alkaline batteries, neodymium magnets and copper coils. 2) Each group of students chose materials to make s-e-train and participated in competitions, learned the cross-disciplinary ability and how to control manipulated variables as factors. 3) Each group of students conducted STEAM projects, blueprints and completed s-e-train projects, which were creative.
