Learning Rooms STEM Club – Summer challenges

by Amy Collins August 5, 2021

Are you looking for engaging ideas to inspire young minds over the summer holidays?

Dr. Katherine Forsey, Gratnells’ Learning Rooms & STEM Consultant, has hand-selected 22 of her favourite STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) challenges to help you through the summer break. From catapults to kitchen chemistry, balloon powered LEGO cars to stomp rockets, there is plenty of fun to be had indoors and out.

Whether you’re a parent or a holiday club leader, there’s plenty to keep your wards occupied. All of the activities use simple household items, things that can be found in your recycling box, or kitchen cupboard staples so resourcing should not be a barrier to having a go.

Click on the poster image to the right to download a free PDF showing all the challenges. The PDF download has clickable links on each image taking you to the full instructions with additional photographs or videos to inspire your builds.

We’d love to see photographs of your creations and you can share them with us on social media tagging @Gratnells and using #LRSTEMClub. Have fun and we can’t wait to see which challenges you choose to take on.
