STEM Courses with 2 whole-class kits delivered for free!

We have a number of regional industry funders supporting the development of STEM education in the classroom by funding two teachers per school in regions across the UK to attend the online Structures and Mechanisms with Basic Electrics course and kit to enable the delivery of the project.

Our one day, virtual, practical CPD course for Primary Engineer Structures and Mechanisms with Basic Electrics programme will enable you to deliver whole-class, curriculum-mapped design technology engineering themes projects and be partnered with an engineer to work with you on the training day and after with pupils.

Develop skills, both practical and cognitive with your learners as they use and apply maths and science through a design and technology project. Link it to learning themes and deliver cross-curricular teaching confidently.
