STEM Directories

by Guest Blogger: CathyB 25. September 2008 15:23

This free resource has recently been published to provide information for teachers on schemes and activities provided by organisations from across the UK that aim to enhance and enrich the curriculum. Each activity is linked to the curriculum and is usually based around events or experiences that cannot be delivered with standard school contacts and resources.

The STEM Directories are delivered in three distinct volumes: Science, Engineering and Technology, and Mathematics. They feature national and regional activities and include a number of East Midlands’ STEM opportunities such as Space Academy, Lab in a Lorry, bioKnex, Kit in a Kase from CELS and the British Geological Survey’s ‘Seconds from Catastrophe? Living with a volcano’’.  

Schools will be contacted in October to offer them copies of the Directories. 

Following the publication of the printed directories this month, the STEM Directories consortium is conducting a consultation programme with teachers and STEM scheme providers. This process will review initial reactions and build constructive feedback into the second phase of the project, which is likely to be an online resource launched in 2009.
