Inventors & Makers and Little STEAMers

Hands-On STEM Workshops, Clubs & Classes for Ages 2-12

Join from School, Nursery or Home

Hi, I'm Laura from Inventors & Makers. Our self-led virtual workshops and clubs 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.

"The teachers were able to simply click on their link and use the STEM workshop with their children in their own room. The resources for the activities were easy to grab and low in cost and each activity was age appropriate. The children were engaged throughout and it was very helpful to be able to pause the video to ask their very curious questions and discuss further if needed. They had lots of fun!" (Miss Field DT/Science Lead, Kirkheaton Primary School)
