New STEM Clubs Featured Resources - A STEM Future (Age Range 7-16)
We are really excited to announce the launch of our new themed activity booklets - A STEM Future.
The resource sets have been developed with advice from club leaders and offer an exciting glimpse into how STEM could influence the world. Topics range from augmenting the human body to studying how animals adapt to their environment and of course, how we humans influence the world around us. There are activities to excite everyone’s interest.
We are really pleased that we’ve been able to collaborate with the Skills Builder Partnership to link each activity to the free to use Skills Builder Framework. This will help clubs to enhance essential skills for their students and support the careers agenda in the school whilst working on fun and engaging STEM projects. The activity set A Future STEM is entirely linked to careers awareness, essential employability skills and PSHE – clubs and schools can use each of the six activities to support the Gatsby Careers Benchmarks. You can find some super STEM careers support on our website.
This most recent set of STEM Club resources takes a close look at the world around us and how humans impact on the world. They make a great introduction to looking at a greener world, sustainability and supporting a circular economy. There is a set to suit most student interests and many of the projects could be adapted into longer term projects suitable for a CREST Award.
You can download the booklets for free, just make sure you are logged in to your STEM Learning account!
