Invention & Design Workshop for KS2

This STEM Workshop is perfect to teach your KS2 pupils about invention and design with hands-on design activities.

We start by learning about what inventions are and how they solve problems. We then look at how some famous and not so famous inventors solved problems with their inventions and for our practical activity we work through the design thinking process to come up with our own brand new inventions. 

"The workshop was pitched at exactly the right level with plenty of hands on fun. It was just the right length too - couldn't fault it."
