STEM Projects Toolkit

The STEM Projects Toolkit provides resources to help teachers to carry out enquiry-based project work with their students. The resource pack was developed in order to give students hands-on experiences of science and engineering. It is hoped that using scientific methods, the design processes in engineering, and being given the freedom to choose topics, questions or briefs would encourage students to consider careers in STEM subjects.

The resource may also be used by teachers and technicians to support their continuing professional development.

The resource pack was written for the British Science Association by Linda Scott and supported by Intel.
