We offer a range of exciting activities that cover various elements of the primary curriculum. Many activities can be adapted to meet individual school curriculum needs or used as an enrichment activity.
We can also provide links with STEM Ambassadors – a free resource for schools. STEM Ambassadors have a Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics related background or career and help bring activities alive through sharing their own first hand experience.
To see how STEM Ambassadors have supported the following primary activities please visit our case studies section.
Learn about civil engineering in this fun and interactive challenge. Working in pairs, pupils design and build a moving or stationary structure, toy or vehicle. The workshop also includes an interactive talk about designing and building products.
Learn about what makes a rocket fly, forces and Newton’s Third Law of Motion. Pupils design a paper rocket and fire it 100ft in the air.
Explore the chemistry of soap and the science of changing states. Using provided materials, pupils manufacture their own soaps selecting shape and smell. There are also additional activities around running a manufacturing business, working to a budget and so on.
Build an impressive 3.5 metre high tetrahedron out of sticks and rubber bands. As pupils build the structure they are encouraged to think and talk about creativity, maths, shapes, structures and teamwork. They also have a health and safety briefing before starting the challenge.
