What does STEM mean?

STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.  Don’t let that put you off though!

Please find below some fun resources from STEM.org.uk specifically designed for families to use at home.  The resources required, if any, are commonly found in most households.  You do not need to print anything out, as the activities can be displayed on a screen.

Most, if not all, of these resources are provided by STEM.org.uk.  Check out their home learning menu below.   We have provided links to some of the resources that we think you will find easy to use and fun to do.
