 Teach Primary Awards 2019

 'This is an exciting resource which spans from EYFS to UKS2. Each box is full of 28 STEM Projects split   into biological, chemical, environmental and physical sciences. Key learning intentions are   signposted for teachers, so it is clear which elements of the National Curriculum they are covering.'     Judge, Teach Primary Awards 2019


The STEM Projects series provides opportunities for pupils to creatively apply skills and knowledge in science; craft, design and engineering; numeracy and mathematics; and digital technology, whilst completing short- or long-term projects.

Each STEM Projects series box contains a set of cards on a range of topics linked to the National Curriculum for Science and the Curriculum for Excellence in Scotland (links below as pdf download), but their variety also allows them to be successfully incorporated into a cross-curricular approach to topic teaching.

Each topic contains key learning objectives and covers contemporary environmental themes such as recycling and horticulture.
