Don't try to create a STEM curriculum on your own.  Start with the resources that already exist and build from there.

“I Need Practice Programming”: 49 Ideas for Game Clones to Code | The “Invent with Python” Blog

“I Need Practice Programming”: 49 Ideas for Game Clones to Code | The “Invent with Python” Blog | Computer Programming and Gamification | Scoop.it

Here's a list of game clone ideas for you to implement. Each has a short description of the game, links to videos of the game, and descriptions of what kind of algorithms you'll need to know in order to implement them. These games have been selected for their simplicity, so you don't have to spend several weeks designing art, levels, scripted dialogue, or complicated AI. These are clones designed to be doable in roughly a weekend. A Mario or Zelda clone would be complicated to put together, but a Tetris or Asteroids clone would be doable in a weekend.

Why we should care about robots stealing jobs

Why we should care about robots stealing jobs | Computer Programming and Gamification | Scoop.it
Advancements in artificial intelligence place additional classes of jobs – in white collar roles – at risk. Yet pessimists overstate their case. The revolution won’t happen overnight: Forrester predict that by 2027, automation will have a strong impact on employment – but it won’t reach the level of a job apocalypse.

Orisinal : Morning Sunshine

Orisinal : Morning Sunshine | Computer Programming and Gamification | Scoop.it

The Orisinal website has a great collection of Flash games with very simple mechanics that can be copied. http://www.ferryhalim.com/orisinal/

I especially recommend Winter Bells, A Daily Cup of Tea, Bugs, and Hold the Rope!

The Wikipedia entry for video game clones also lists some ideas.

UPDATE: If you'd like to make some more advanced games, I highly recommend you watch the talk Juice it or lose it - a talk by Martin Jonasson & Petri Purho on some simple tweaks and tricks that turn a simple pong game into a really polished looking pong game.

Practical advice for teaching kids how to program | Opensource.com | Computer Programming and Gamification | Scoop.it
I've written several books to teach beginners of all ages how to code, and I know from experience that you don't need to consider yourself a techie or "good at math" to learn. In fact, kids often can learn to program faster than adults precisely because they don't know how "difficult" coding is supposed to be.
