Showcasing creativity and sharing ideas: winners of classroom displays competition announced

For the past few months, STEM Learning has been running a classroom displays competition – the chance for teachers to share photos of their most inspiring and creative displays.

As always, we’ve received some fantastic entries, showcasing the creative talents of teachers and students around the UK. From plants and water cycles to careers and Pokemon, the variety of entries we’ve received has been incredible.

It’s been a tough decision, and after a lot of deliberation, we have chosen the six winners of the competition, who will receive £100 worth of gift vouchers.

Who are the winners? 

The best display there has ever ‘bean’ 

Using resources from Twinkl, this reception class have planted broad bean seeds in plastic containers and have watched them grow.

Growing plants and students’ knowledge

Year 3 students grew plants in different conditions to find out which ones grew best. They identified key vocabulary shown on the display, including growth, photosynthesis and life cycles.

Water creative display

Covering science and geography, this display shows the stages involved in the water cycle. The class took part in the BBC Terrific Scientific water investigation and the results of water hardness testing were displayed. Not only this, they made mobiles and paper plate water cycles to explain the stages involved.

Showcasing STEM careers

Created for British Science Week, this display gathers together a variety of scientists in their field doing everyday jobs, helping to show students the vast range of career options open to them.

Transporting across cell membranes

This fantastic 3D display aims to help post-16 biologists understand the different ways that molecules can be transported across cell membranes. Even better – the whole display was made solely from things in a stationary cupboard.
