Welcome to our resources section! Here we are posting activities, videos and other resources to help spark your interest and curiosity, entertain you and keep you busy.
Teachers and community group leaders are welcome to use these activities within their settings and we’d love to hear from you if you have any comments or ideas to share.
We are also posting the fantastic pictures of work children have created, so if you are one of our ‘writing whiz kids’ or ‘wordsearch wonders’ then keep an eye on this page for your photo!

Exploring our website
Our website is full of information about the amazing work and research that our staff and students are involved in.
Parents or carers of younger children may wish to explore our website themselves before deciding what might be of interest, or suitable, for your child/children depending on their age.
For older children - those in Key Stage 3 and above - it can be a great source of information and inspiration.
Partner organisations with great resources
There are lots of other organisations who are just as passionate as we are about STEM and want to encourage children of all ages to get involved, and for older children to think about the possibilities that a career in STEM can offer.
Here are some places that you might like to visit:
Please remember – follow the e-safety rules that you have been taught at school, and at home by your parents/carers. Why not explore together so that you can talk about what you find?

- The Institution of Mechanical Engineers - STEM activities at home
- The Royal Academy of Engineering - STEM at home They also have two great sites for older students with inspiration for skills and careers:
Do you have a question?
Do you have a question to put to one of our experts? Do you want to know more about what we do and how it affects you? Are you curious about a STEM topic?
Each month we will gather up your questions and include them in our newsletter to staff, challenging them to share their expertise and give you a top mark answer or solution. You can write to us at email@example.com - please put ‘I have a question’ in your email title.
