Hi, I'm Laura from Inventors & Makers. Our virtual sessions are designed to make STEM accessible for you to do from school, nursery or home.
We do all the hard work of planning and teaching STEM for you. We even use resources and equipment you'll probably already have. So all you need to do is get yourself set up and press play on our videos.
Take a look through our workshops and after-school clubs for EYFS, KS1 and KS2, and our home-based Little STEAMers classes for ages 2-5.
With A Year of STEM Heroes you get more than a school year's worth of Inventors & Makers of the Week resources to share with your class.
These interactive extended assemblies get all your pupils thinking about inventors, inventions and seeing themselves as inventors of the future.
In this British Science Week space-themed workshop, children learn about mankind's journey into space through the world of engineering with hands-on activities.
In this workshop children learn about what engineering is and then use engineering principles to build their own sturdy structures.
This workshop introduces inventors and inventions and teaches children to come up with their own inventions to solve a problem from a story.
In this unplugged coding workshop, children learn about human connectivity from solving cypher codes in Roman times to how computers work using binary code today.
This workshop teaches children about levers, pulleys and inclined planes as they engineer their own machines to solve problems from a story.
This short taster workshop gives you a flavour of our workshops with a simple engineering challenge that you can set up today.
In this British Science Week space-themed workshop we learn about mankind's journey into space through the world of engineering with hands-on activities.
This workshop explores the evolution of structures and engineering principles as children take part in hands-on construction challenges.
Children discover the six simple machines and complete engineering challenges to construct them, thinking about the forces in action.
This workshop inspires pupils to come up with their own invention ideas as they learn about and use the design thinking process.
In this unplugged coding workshop we explore how humans have communicated with cyphers through history and how computers operate using binary code today.
This coding unplugged workshop follows the use of cyphers to communicate throughout history and how these form the basis of modern day encryption on our phones.
