STEM clubs resources

This collection contains a vast array of STEM-related activity resources that are suitable for use in a STEM Club setting. The resources included in this collection contain long, short and one-off activities.

  • One-off activities are completed in one session. They are highly engaging and can have a real wow factor.
  • Short projects are any activity that takes club members two to three sessions to complete. Many of the shorter projects will include demonstrations or experiments that can be used as one-off activities.
  • Long projects are activities that take half a term or more to complete and might be considered a long project. Completing a long project can be very rewarding, especially if there is an award or a prize involved.


Bin Packing

The purpose of bin packing is to pack a collection of objects into containers called bins. The bins are all the same size and the objects to be packed are different sizes. The aim is to pack the objects into the bins using the fewest possible bins. In this example students are asked to save computer files onto a CD...


This resource contains activities based around the concept of astronauts living in space. It is intended that students try out all the activities before producing a specification for their biosphere.

*Breathing: this activity describes how one can use simple equipment to measure the volume of air breathed at...

Black Hole Mathematics

This series of activities from NASA take a mathematical approach to looking at black holes. They are intended as supplementary problems for students looking for additional challenges in the maths and physical science post-16 curriculum. Problems consist of a student page and an answer sheet. Students need to be...

Bloodhound SSC Mathematical Model

From BLOODHOUND SSC, this resource demonstrates how to progress from a simple mathematical model to a more complex and more useful model to predict how fast the rocket car will go. The resource applies Newton's three laws of motion to BLOODHOUND and uses physics and mathematics to explain what is needed to make it...
