Support for STEM Clubs
STEM Clubs are individual to each school and there is no fixed formula for running one. There is, however, plenty of support available for those wanting to start a STEM Club, and for existing club leaders who want to develop their club further.
Discover a range of materials to support you in delivering exciting activities, both inside and outside of the classroom.
Explore our STEM Clubs scheme of work, as well as a template of events suitable for use in a STEM Club.
This series of videos describes how to set up a STEM Club, and the range of different ways to approach it.
STEM Club stories
"We started running a Space Club for key stage 2 pupils based within a primary school. Our primary pupils are given the chance to carry out activities in different facilities and settings, with equipment they wouldn’t always have access to. Linking with secondary schools has also been invaluable because it helps make the transition from key stage 2 to key stage 3 smoother for the pupils."
Jackie Flaherty is an ESERO-UK Space Ambassador, Director of STEM at Chipping Campden School and an Ogden Trust Teacher Fellow. We chatted to her about her experience of setting up a STEM Club and the journey the club has been on over the last six years.
