6 Week STEM Club: Inspire your students with SPACE science!

In November 2015, British ESA astronaut, Major Timothy Peake is due to launch to the International Space Station on a 6-month scientific mission. Many educational resources have been developed and many more are in development to engage, educate and enhance the National Curriculum.

Derbyshire Education Business Partnership have compiled a searchable list of mission-related resources that would be most suitable for a 6-week STEM Club for you to deliver at your school (Primary and Secondary).

This list of resources is available to download from the DEBP website here…

The resource links have been collated from several online sources (National STEM Centre, ESA, ESERO and NASA) 

We would like to encourage you to Start a 6-week (cross-curricular) STEM Club during your autumn 2015 term using these resources as your inspiration/activities.

TWO simple steps to start organising your STEM Club:

1. Choose 6 activities from the list of resources Tim Peake resources for Autumn 2015 (0.02 MB)

Each activity details whether it is Primary or Secondary and the main subject links.

2. Decide when you want to start your STEM Club

We suggest beginning during w/c 14th Sept 2015 and ending at Half term OR begin during World Space Week (4-10th October) and run for 3 weeks before half term and 3 weeks afterwards, which would mean your 6th week will coincide with Tim’s current* launch date. (*subject to launch delays).

There are more Tim Peake resources being developed by the UK Space Agency, especially for schools that will run throughout his 6 month mission, which means your STEM Club and Space-science enhancement can extend throughout the 2015/16 school year.

Want to start your own 6 Week STEM Club? Contact us here, we can help you get started and support you throughout – our STEM Ambassadors can visit your school FREE!
