Overview

Discover how to plan inspiring and engaging STEM activities

Bringing to life science, technology, engineering and maths with practical activities is one of the best ways to engage young people in STEM subjects. As a volunteer you have a wealth of knowledge and experience to draw upon, but how do you best inspire young people?

On this course you will learn how to plan, organise and design practical STEM activities effectively. You’ll learn how to select STEM activities to suit different contexts, such as running an activity with a teacher in a school, or being a guest speaker to a Guides or Scout group in a village hall.

This course has been created for anyone volunteering with young people in STEM. This includes STEM Ambassadors in the UK, youth volunteering group organisers, field trip educators, scout groups (and similar), outdoor pursuit centres, outreach from NGOs. You will need knowledge of STEM subjects or experience of working in a STEM environment.

To get the most out of this course, learners should complete the introductory course beforehand:
