STEM

We use kinaesthetic learning to help young people understand areas of science, technology, engineering and maths that may confuse them on paper. Using our vast range of interactive equipment and large-scale apparatus, we challenge children to think critically and independently to solve problems related to their relevant curriculum.

Our sessions can include:

Topic Example Session
Air Resistance Egg’cellent Parachutes

Navigation Geocaching

Design Build a bridge
Using lollipop sticks and masking tape, build a bridge to span a distance
Combustion Doughnut Challenge
Children work out how to build sustain a fire to burn through the string to release some doughnuts.
Animal Adaptions Adapting animals
Meet the stuffed animals and examine how they are adapted to their environments
Health and well-being Healthy Heart-rate experiment
