KS3 – KS4 STEM Challenges

KS3 – KS4 STEM Challenges are real life issues. That’s why teenagers find them engaging.

A year group of up to 120 pupils work in teams to overcome 3 very different challenges in a day.

They will have to innovate, experiment and manage their budgets too, to win the challenges.

We can timetable in a careers talk, making our STEM Challenge days a practical and fun introduction to STEM careers.
