Teaching Future-Proof Skills

In-Person and Online STEM Workshops for Primary Schools

Get children excited about and inspired by science, technology and engineering with our expert-led, hands-on STEM workshops.

Designed to fit in with your curriculum, our workshops strengthen pupils' grasp of core concepts, setting them up for a lifetime of success in STEM.

“Sometimes when external companies come in you worry that the kids won't be fully engaged by them as they aren't necessarily 'natural teachers'. However, having Susie who has worked as a teacher before, she knew exactly how to hook them. The pupils absolutely loved it."

 - Miss Kershaw, Spinfield Primary

Workshop Themes & Content

British Science Week 2023: Connections Themed Unplugged Workshops

For EYFS, KS1 & KS2, online or in-person

In our EYFS Coding Unplugged workshop we'll learn about logic, sequencing and directional coding using offline practical activities. The workshop includes various activities like songs, movement and a story.

In our Lower KS2 Cyphers & Code workshops, we learn about the use of cyphers to communicate throughout history. We then learn about how computers work using binary code, including the way that calculators perform their calculations using binary. 

In our KS1 Secrets of Code workshop we learn about how humans have used cyphers to communicate throughout history and link to how computers work using binary code. 

In our Upper KS2 The Secrets of Encyption workshops, we learn about the use of cyphers to communicate throughout history and how these form the basis of modern day encryption in technology.

Invention & Design

For KS1 & KS2, online or in-person

We learn about how inventions solve our trickiest problems, and some famous (and not so famous) inventors.

Then, we use the design thinking process to create an invention that solves a real world problem ourselves!

Engineering & Structures

For EYFS, KS1 & KS2, online or in-person

We learn about some of the world's best known structures and the engineers who designed them.

 

We then use engineering principles to complete hands-on challenges that get us building structures like towers and bridges.

Engineering & Machines

For EYFS, KS1 & KS2, online or in-person

We learn about engineering, machines and the six simple machines.

We then build and test different machines including levers, pulleys, inclined planes and compound machines like winches.

Video Game Design

For KS2, in-person

We learn about what video game designers do and the vocabulary they use.

We then use drag and drop software to create different kinds of video games like ball & paddle and maze games.

* iPads are needed for this workshop

Coding & Robotics

For KS2, in-person

We learn about coding and the function of different robots before building and programming our own.

We write code for different real world purposes such as creating a pedometer, a game or navigating a Moon Lander to solve a variety of problems.

*We ask that school provide their own laptops to use with our robotics equipment
