This session will enable STEM Ambassadors and Teachers to find out more about this fantastic resource that links STEM to Literacy and Numeracy, using traditional tales to undertake fun hands-on Design, Technology and Science activities.

The STEM Sessions are suitable for Early Years all the way through to KS3 depending on how the activity is differentiated in school. The book itself contains 8 activities that can be undertaken in a whole-class setting over a term or could provide x8 week’s work of STEM Club activity and links STEM and Skills to challenges within traditional tales. Each activity also looks at stereotypes and confronts issues around what engineers do all day and what do they look like. You will receive a copy of our Engineering Fairy Tales book and then be taken through the context of STEM skills and Engineering mind-sets before learning how to deliver this resource in class or via a STEM club.




  • You will gain a knowledge of what the new framework and the "deep dives" will look like in your own school setting
  • Develop an awareness of effective strategies to support the new framework with colleagues in outreach work
  • Opportunity to network with colleagues in a similar role across both primary and secondary phases
  • We will also have the opportunity to discuss the challenges of being a science SLE trying to support collegues during the pandemic
