Free school resources
Our partners at the Primary Science Teaching Trust (PSTT) have developed off the shelf resources for running extra-curricular clubs for children. Aimed at teachers or other adults looking for support to introduce a science or STEM club to children, PSTT is creating 4 freely accessible club packs.
Each pack provides:
- an overview of how to run the sessions and list of all the resources required (simple, everyday materials) for 8 sessions.
- an activity sheet for each of the 8 sessions, giving the session leader guidance on organising the activities, which will include a practical challenge for the children, key facts/science and ideas for questions and further activities.
- Some packs also contain a fact sheet for children to take home to encourage them to share findings with their families and take their learning further.
