Professional development is important at every stage of your career and there is always room for growth especially in an ever-changing environment.

Resources

The STEM website is home to over 14,000 free, quality resources to support the teaching and learning of STEM subjects. Our subject experts have put together some curated collections, organised into topic area and year group, however you are welcome to explore the resource library for yourself. 

 

To support the recent increase in home learning, we have also put together these exciting activity collections, containing a range of fun, hands-on activities that can be used to engage young people of all ages with science, technology, engineering and maths. They require little or no equipment so are suitable for any classroom or home learning. 
 

 

Smartphone apps to help teach science and computing

To support and complement the learning of the most vulnerable children at home, we have put together a comprehensive list of apps available on Android or iOS to enable children to stay engaged with learning if they can't fully access all of the resources schools have set.​ Suitable for all ages and key stages.
 

Best evidence on supporting students to learn remotely

The EEF's rapid evidence assessment examines the existing research for approaches that schools could use, or are already using, to support pupils' remote learning.
 

Remote lessons for children

To support home teaching, we have created some remotely-delivered, curriculum-linked computing and science lessons for young people aged 5-19.

 

Enrichment

Enrichment activities are a great way to support your delivery of a broad and balanced curriculum.
 
From setting up a thriving STEM Club in your school to engaging with our STEM Ambassadors volunteers to assist the delivery of enrichment activities and inspire your students, there are many ways in which we can help.
