Searching STEM Learning resources

Searching STEM Learning resources

In the previous step, you examined a wide variety of organisations which produce resources which can be used for practical activities. We will now look at the resources on STEM Learning’s database.

Should you wish to take part in this task, you will need to register to access the resources, but registration is free. You may have already registered if you are a STEM Ambassador. The website and resources are open to anyone, not just teachers or STEM Ambassadors.

If you are not based in the UK: when registering for the STEM Learning website, you should not register as a STEM Ambassador if you are outside the UK. Please choose International.

There are three ways to use the STEM Learning resources:

  1. Just use the STEM Ambassador collection of classroom activities.
  2. Search resources for STEM Clubs.
  3. Search the whole database, including teaching resources.

Task

To familiarise yourself with what is available, go to the STEM Learning Resources and find an activity related to a space exploration suitable for ages 7-11. In the UK, our context might be to find something specific to Tim Peake’s (UK astronaut) mission that we would use with a Brownies group.
