After-School Clubs

Our after-school Engineer Academy ​teaches children different engineering concepts and skills each week across a term. We make sure pupils are engaged with practical activities after a full day in school.​

  • Ready to set up and run easily in your own school.

  • Practical and hands-on activities to engage all learners.

  • Teaching concepts from engineering including simple machines, structures, flight and design.

  • Developing important 21st-Century skills like problem solving, creativity and collaboration.

  • Parent information about club content provided.​​​

STEM Workshops & Assemblies

Our workshops and assemblies help schools in and around London who are struggling to fit D&T or STEM into class time. We can take many aspects of the Design & Technology or Computing curriculum off your hands and provide pupils with engaging and inspiring workshops and assemblies.

Workshops are run by Laura Cross, STEM expert author and teacher for Teach Primary magazine. You can see more about Laura here.

"The assembly was beautifully pitched to engage our pupils, based on using their thinking, competitiveness and team building the end of the assembly they were all confident they could explain what engineering meant, and could imagine how their individual preferences and strengths could be applied to a career in engineering."

The activities were really good. The children enjoyed working in teams too. The structure was very good because it allowed everyone to join in. Resources were included which really helped. Definitely would recommend this workshop to other teachers!

It was a great workshop to encourage children's creativity while consolidating key learning. I loved seeing my children engaged in the workshop from the very beginning to the very end of it. It was also so inclusive and every single child could partake in it.

Laura was amazing. Would love to her back next time. Really, really enjoyed her session and I am sure my children would agree 100% !

"The assembly was exciting, interesting and informative. All children who took part - whether they were in the audience or the quiz team - had great fun and learned a lot about the engineering profession. The children were chatting about engineering way after the assembly. I bet we will have several more future engineers in our cohort now!"

What are teachers saying?

The Serious Bit....

  • All of our class leaders are qualified and experienced teachers.

  • Our leaders always have an enhanced DBS (criminal record) check and pediatric first aid training.

  • All classes are fully insured and a risk assessment is carried out prior to each in-person session.
