Starting a STEM Club can be a very rewarding experience to everyone involved. Although they complement the curriculum, they are not designed to be about writing, tests, or exams. Activities may involve practical experiments, investigation, discussion and reflection. Most of all, they should be fun.
They can motivate and build confidence in young people who struggle with STEM subjects, and provide an extra outlet for children who already show aptitude and are interested in furthering their learning.
Here are some video guides to help you get started, continue to run and give you ideas on the sort of activities you can do in your own STEM Club.
