Stem rocks our world NS009

This course offers hands-on activities to explore STEM concepts linking these to areas of the Scottish Curriculum for Excellence (CfE).


Through a range of hands-on practical activities delegates will explore science, technology, engineering and mathematics concepts and link these to areas of the Scottish Curriculum for Excellence (CfE). Participants will have the opportunity to explore how these practical activities and concepts can be used to support and develop STEM skills in learners, from early to second level. The course content will explore CfE Experiences and Outcomes from the Planet Earth Organiser, giving teachers the chance to develop skills and expand their knowledge of the big ideas in this area. Participants will be asked to reflect on what they have taken from the course and share ideas for developing these ideas in their own settings.
