Rolls-Royce is offering free ways to engage with tomorrow’s scientists and engineers. The company says they want to give every young person who shows an interest in STEM subjects the chance to explore those interests in an educational way that’s exciting and inspiring. They have produced a whole host of STEM-related activity packs for inquisitive young minds eager to learn more about cleaner sustainable aviation and have fun in the process.
The resources have been written for students from age 3 – 11. Each resource has been linked to the National Curriculum and is centered around flight, electricity, recycling and sustainable energy. As they are free; parents, carers, teachers, home educators, STEM ambassadors and curious kids have access to them all. These resources have been designed to utilize everyday classroom/home resources.
Under each heading – Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math, there are a number of activities. Each activity has a set of lesson plans, and, where additional resources are required, these are also available; eg: presentations, results tables, images etc. “Our aim was to put ourselves into your shoes and take out any addition work, effectively a downloadable topic!” says Rolls-Royce.
