STEM Directory

I've put together a spreadsheet containing a list of companies, organisations and charities that provide resources, events, programmes and competitions, etc. to promote and encourage STEM in schools. I hope you find it useful. Let me know what you think-I'm always looking to improve the resources I make.

Winter or Christmas Diorama DT Challenge

Winter or Christmas Diorama DT Challenge

A great end of term activity for the final week of term 2. I have used this challenge with various KS1 and KS2 classes. Obviously, the support varies. For younger children just creating the scene was enough and they needed more premade elements e.g. printed characters etc. For older children the Further suggestions became requirements. Children could work in pairs/groups/individually. They were great to display and get parents in too. Caution: if using school circuits you will need to brief children beforehand that they will need to dismantle that part of their diorama - this usually meant the circuitry was added to the background rather than within the display.

Simply put, the earlier educators integrate STEM lessons into their daily curriculum, the better chance children will develop a stronger understanding of these skills, as well as cultivate a future interest. For this reason, this Science bundle with a total of 10 creative and engaging STEM Projects have been designed and uploaded just for you. Trust me, this will keep your learners on the edge of their seats and through these projects, your desired promotions might just come through.
