STEM Challenges

The adapted STEM Challenge resource packs are now available to download, free of charge, for use in the classroom or as part of your extra-curricular STEM Club.

STEMNET manages the STEM Challenges programme which started as a series of Challenge competitions for secondary schools. Each Challenge was originally inspired by London 2012 and aimed to provide students, aged 11-14 years, with an opportunity to use their STEM skills and help provide a real-life context for these skills. The programme was a great success with over 400 UK secondary schools taking part over its 3-year lifetime.

The original STEM Challenge resource packs have now been adapted, to remove the London 2012 theme, so they can continue to remain relevant and useful to schools. Each STEM Challenge is designed to take 6-8 weeks and is an ideal activity to carry out in a STEM Club environment. The resources are also flexible enough to be used as part of normal school lessons. The STEM Challenges programme is also CREST accredited.
