We celebrated all things STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths) from Monday 28 June to Friday 2 July by releasing new mini lectures each day created by University of Central Lancashire experts and our partners at Electricity North West and Sika. Each short 5-minute mini lecture is accompanied by teacher notes and activity packs. These resources will continue to be available for the rest of the term.
To view these resources and the mini lectures, scroll to the bottom of the page.
These mini lectures, activity packs, and teacher notes are freely available. Before delivering activities, teachers should complete a risk assessment taking into account their classroom environments, class sizes, and the level of supervision available.
Looking for inspiration for your next classroom-based STEM activity? Head to BAE Systems online Learning Hub and explore the Engineering Fairy Tales.
This collection of STEM stories and challenges were designed to help children understand the world of engineering and develop their teamwork and creative problem-solving skills, whilst having fun. These familiar stories with a twist were developed by education experts at STEMFirst, and are read by STEM Ambassadors from BAE Systems, the Royal Navy, British Army and the Royal Air Force.
