STEM on screen

Everyone loves good movies, TV shows and fairy tales, but each of them contain a surprising number of opportunities for STEM to be explored. This resource set provides students with the chance to discover some of the ‘magic’ behind well-known movies, facts and fairy tales. Could you really make a skate board hover? Could Rapunzel really climb down her hair? Do magical creatures really exist?

Covering a wide range of STEM subjects the resources are both age and ability differentiated, with each set providing at least six hours of fun-filled STEM Clubs engagement. The activities are a great way for new clubs to get involved and for established clubs to use as exciting introductions to further research and experimentation. Club Leaders can dip in and out of the activities or students can work through a complete set of eight activities.
