STEM explorers

This professional development programme aims to improve teachers’ confidence, knowledge and practice in science, technology, engineering, computing and mathematics. Teachers will plan and teach integrated STEM projects to help pupils gain an understanding of engineering - including through ‘coding’, moving parts of models and applying mathematical, technology and scientific skills. Pupils will solve real and relevant problems linked to the key stage 2 national curriculum.

Nb. Class boxes of kit are available for loan to support project work in school.
