STEM Challenges

Engage your students in our weekly Live STEM Challenges!

We are engaging with our STEM stars weekly through our YouTube Channel, where we are exploring an area of Science, D&T and Engineering each week as we set a challenge to encourage students to explore and experiment remotely.

Dates and Location

The Live STEM Challenges will take place every Thursday at 2pm.


The Live STEM Challenges run for 20 minutes and set children a challenge they can continue to explore independently.
