While you are at home, we thought it would be a good idea for you to use this time to practise your STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) skills. With STEM, we are teaching skills the way they will be used in the workforce and the real world. Rarely does a job require only one skill set like maths. Picture an architect, they use science, math, engineering and technology to do their jobs.
Below are some fun and exciting activities we would like you to explore. They require you to experiment with your mathematical and scientific understanding while using your knowledge of design and technology. Throughout the building process, you must evaluate your work at each stage and make the necessary changes and adjustment to create a quality outcome for the product. Feel free to send your creations to us via our Twitter page or by email. We look forward to seeing them!
