……as simple as that!

why would you put stem and global learning together
Why would you put STEM and global learning together??

From Practical Action’s point of view

It gives us a way of integrating global learning into mainstream subjects that wouldn’t normally teach in this way

…Which will help us inspire more students to care about poverty reduction…and act accordingly

From a teacher’s point of view

  • Global issues provide a great context for hands-on inquiry based learning
  • Good for SEAL and PLTS
  • Reinforces understanding of the subject
  • Fits the National Curriculum criteria
  • Really engages pupil
what teachers say about our stem resources
What teachers say about our STEM resources

‘Excellent resources, very comprehensive and targeted at the right level.’

‘‘..using the resource (Moja island) I received an ‘outstanding’ observation’

‘The pages on the 6Rs are brilliant. I have printed them in colour and laminated them. They are on the wall in the workshop for all the students to see. Very inspirational.’

‘The activity is ‘fantastic’, it shows students how they can relate what they learnt to a real life situation.  We recently completed a unit on forces but until now they didn’t see how that could be applied’.

Wind power challenge

‘After the event the pupils were really keen to do more work on this and I felt it lent itself to a project involving  our partner school Malaika elementary in Zambia.

…I have now got a very keen group of pupils who are going to look at all things water related....hopefully presenting their work at the regional Big Bang in July (east midlands). We have downloaded the water projects sheet from your website’

Redmoor High school used the wind power challenge as part of NSEW

Global CREST challenges

‘We wanted a project that both departments could work on together, as soon as we saw the CREST global challenges would fit that perfectly’

‘ These practical projects provide a really effective way of helping young people understand sustainable development and engage with global issues’
