Fact finders 7-9
The (fictional) show Fact Finders TV needs help from your STEM Club! The show explores common myths, crazy stories and possible pranks and is asking pupils to find out, ‘Is it really true?’ and ‘How could it work?’ Pupils will make their own models to test their ideas and draw conclusions so they can report back on what’s fact and what’s fiction.
The activities are introduced with a quick objective and a preparation guide. Individuals or groups can then work through the challenges to achieve the results. The main subject topics are science, mathematics, design and technology and computing.
Background information, extension ideas and top tips are provided, together with student guides and instructions. This resource has been created by STEM Learning to support the STEM Clubs Programme and has been developed in partnership with STEM Club leaders.
