STEM Club - Science Hunters Minecraft Club for children with autism

At Science Hunters we run a regular Minecraft Club for children on the ASD spectrum. We introduce a science topic then challenge them to build something related in Minecraft. This week, to celebrate Healthy Heart month, we learned all about the heart, blood and circulatory system before creating some amazing builds such as a red blood cell, roller coaster circulation and centrifuged blood.

Thank you :)

Hi Laura,

There is small group who have just set-up locally and we are chatting to them about support. This is a super idea. Can we keep in touch with you? It is a very new area for us, so we are feeling our way as how best to support them. 
At the moment we are very busy as we have a big Science Festival about to start but perhaps we could touch base and our email is info@futuregroup.org.uk.

Hi Lesley,

Sorry for the delay (half term!). Of course, we're always happy to help where we can. We're gearing up to British Science Week here but it'd be great to touch base. We're on sciencehunters@lancaster.ac.uk - please feel free to email me if I don't email you first!

Hi Laura

What a briliant club you have! Is there any way STEM Clubs can support you, we have some very firendly and helpful STEM Ambassadors who could provide support.

Drop us a line and let us know if there is anything we can do to help.

Thank you, we're really busy at the moment with the build up to British Science Week but this is definitely something to think about!
