Module 1: Getting Started With STEM Inquiry Work
This module introduces the STEM Projects Toolkit, its background and its goals. A schematic diagram shows the contents of the resource pack, showing the pathways which teachers and technicians can use to access information and enrich lessons.
The resource builds on the successes of the CREST Awards, a formal project award scheme, focusing on the importance of developing Inquiry-Based Learning (IBL) and Problem-Based Learning (PBL) skills. The needs of business and industry, and the positive impact of introducing 'real life' challenges into science in schools, are considered in this module.
The STEM Projects Toolkit was produced by the British Science Association and written by Linda Scott.
