Primary School Workshops
All of JuniorSTEM’s primary school workshops are fun and packed full with learning. The activities are very practical – your children will be working hands on for most of the session. Creativity and problem solving are encouraged: we try to help children come up with their own solutions by giving them time to think and gentle guidance. Extension activities/challenges are used to extend higher attaining children whereas less able children can access the programming APP and Lego pieces at their own level and at their own speed.
Each Primary School workshop has a particular curriculum focus or link, however they all cover the NC objectives detailed on the National Curriculum Objectives pages on this website ( DT ICT ). Pupils will cover most of the programming and coding objectives as well as the ‘control’ part of the DT curriculum where they are expected to control a mechanical model using a computer.
JuniorSTEM Primary school workshops require very little preparation by you because your presenter will bring all equipment (including fully charged computers) and all activities are best run in a normal classroom. If you have any other questions about session requirements and organisation please visit our workshop FAQs or alternatively contact us directly.
This is not an extensive list. Models can sometimes be designed to meet your objectives in order to get the most out of your JuniorSTEM primary school workshop.
