STEM Learning

 

The STEM learning website offer a selection of free curriculum-linked science lessons for pupils and parents to support home teaching.

 

Covering a range of topics, these lessons are remote-delivered and can be accessed at any time of the day. Suitable for all ages, these science lessons help improve subject knowledge and understanding.

 

The lessons identify key, easy-to-access resources, whilst live Q&As with subject experts allows pupils and parents to get answers to their questions and engage with other learners.

 

The STEM learning website will be uploading new lessons each week so be sure to check for updates. 

 

 

 

 

STEM Ambassadors live!

 

Dallas Campbell introduces a day of free live-streamed activities by STEM Ambassadors for schools and students at home. Available live on YouTube on 7 May.

Starters for STEM are 10 activities that parents can use at home to help children develop their science, technology, engineering and maths skills. These activities are easy to resource and provide children with the stimulus to talk about the world around them. If you see a link, you can explore how to extend these activities, you will need to sign up, for free, to access these materials.

Do Try This at Home:

This set of twelve colourful postcards provides hands on activities which link to the topics of electricity, sound, forces, and changes of state. Ideal for practical activities you can do at home using everyday materials you will probably find in your home.

 

The mini-investigations are fun to do and get children thinking about the concepts involved. Two cartoon characters, Marvin and Milo demonstrate the fun experiments. They include: Alka -Seltzer rockets, magic balloon, making a lava lamp, musical coat hanger, making a foil boat and many more. 

SciShow Kids

This youtube channel explores all sorts of things that you have probably never wondered but that I am sure children have asked "why" about many times! For example, what happens if you swallow gum? Where does frost come from?  Why does ice cream hurt my head? - there's something for every curiosity!

Aquafresh Brush Time Tales - Science Project
