Home teaching resources

The STEM website is home to over 14,000 free, quality resources to support the teaching and learning of STEM subjects. Our subject experts have put together some curated collections, organised into topic area and year group, however you are welcome to explore the resource library for yourself. 

 

To support the recent increase in home learning, we have also put together these exciting activity collections, containing a range of fun, hands-on activities that can be used to engage young people of all ages with science, technology, engineering and maths. They require little or no equipment so are suitable for any classroom or home learning. 
 

 

Smartphone apps to help teach science and computing

To support and complement the learning of the most vulnerable children at home, we have put together a comprehensive list of apps available on Android or iOS to enable children to stay engaged with learning if they can't fully access all of the resources schools have set.​ Suitable for all ages and key stages.
 

Best evidence on supporting students to learn remotely

The EEF's rapid evidence assessment examines the existing research for approaches that schools could use, or are already using, to support pupils' remote learning.
 

Remote lessons for children

To support home teaching, we have created some remotely-delivered, curriculum-linked computing and science lessons for young people aged 5-19.

 

Support for schools in narrowing the attainment gap 


  • We have put together a collection of resources, information and advice to support school leaders and teachers in narrowing the attainment gap in STEM, and identifying some effective ways your school might use pupil premium funding.
  • Narrowing the STEM attainment gap

  • Nuffield Research Placements are a fantastic way to encourage your students to learn more about a career in STEM research and have been shown to increase access to university courses in STEM subjects. They give young people, who have received free school meals, lived in local authority care or are first in their family to attend university, the opportunity to gain skills and confidence in science and research.
