Weekly Engineering Clubs for Ages 4-11

Inspiring Pupils Beyond the Classroom

In our After-School Engineering Clubs, pupils learn new STEM concepts through practical engineering and science activities.

Building future-proof skills like problem-solving and teamwork, we also teach children to love engineering and creativity, helping your school inspire pupils towards successful futures in STEM.

We can run clubs in-person at your school or you can use one of our self-led programmes to run your own club.

Why run an Inventors & Makers club?

Expert Led

Each week's session is planned and delivered either in-person, or for our self-led clubs via an interactive video, by qualified, experienced primary teachers and award-winning STEM experts. When you choose a self-led club, your staff simply need to set up and supervise!

Easy Set Up

When we run your club in-person we'll do everything for you from booking to delivery. For our self-led clubs all activities are designed to keep prep time and costs low. We give you a list of simple materials you’ll need each week and clear guidance on running the session yourself.

Happy Parents, Healthy Budgets

Studies have found that 90% of parents understand the importance of STEM skills for their children's futures and our clubs usually sell out quickly. When you choose a self-led club, you pay a low-cost flat rate for the term, meaning you can choose what to charge parents, either creating an affordable inclusive club or raising funds for your STEM budget.

“This club makes teaching STEM easy!

 

I loved all the subject knowledge and technical vocabulary that was taught alongside making models and testing structures.

 

The children felt like real engineers by the end of the course and their parents said that it was the best club they'd ever joined!”

 - Jane Berry, Science Coordinator, Park Mead Primary

My 5 year old daughter has been attending this wonderful engineering after-school club for a few months and is really enjoying it.

 

She often brings her inventions home to finesse or to show us and is always full of fab facts to share.

 

A great club to extend children’s learning and a fab opportunity to let their creativity shine. Thank you!

 - Ruth Howe, parent

“The Engineering after-school club is fun, engaging and the children learn great skills as well as vocabulary each week.

 

The equipment is easy and the lessons are very simple to follow even if you have no previous experience.

 

Our pupils loved it!”

 - Mrs McWeeney, Science Lead, Chiswick

““I thoroughly enjoyed leading Little Engineers Club with our KS1 children.

 

They learnt so much, whilst having lots of fun! It was easy for me to access and to prepare for, which meant I was able to enjoy the club with the children instead of having to worry about content and resources."

 - Miss Collis EYFS Lead & DT Coordinator
