During this crime-solving exercise, kids will be encouraged to develop their skills in investigation and evaluation by analysing key evidence relating to the ‘crime’ and making an informed judgement as to who committed the theft. The science activities involved in this course will help kids develop essential problem solving and critical thinking skills that are fast becoming key requirements of STEM careers.
This STEMmates course is designed to promote collaboration between course participants and their peers. As well as helping kids develop essential social skills, the interactive science activities involved in this course will provide participants with an insight into the challenges and benefits of working as a team. Listening, voicing ideas, and working with others are essential skills in any workplace. By encouraging kids to work together to solve problems, this course will prepare kids for future job requirements.
STEMmates is all about giving kids the best chance at success in education and careers. This course aims to provide kids with a headstart in their STEM education by encouraging them to get to grips with key scientific activities, skills and theories they will encounter in their science lessons at school. By helping kids develop a passion for STEM education and building their self-confidence, our interactive science course aims to positively impact students’ attitudes towards learning.
Career preparation - As opposed to traditional learning techniques that focus on theory over action, this activity-based learning course demonstrates the real-life applications of science in the career space. The course will provide an insight into how science can be applied to jobs such as forensics, encouraging kids to explore and consider alternative STEM career paths.
