Background

School staff and STEM ambassadors often find it difficult to gauge how support for curriculum enhancement and enrichment can be used effectively to improve learning within the classroom. A series of activities have been designed as a vehicle to encourage teachers and ambassadors to work together and for teachers to gain the confidence to run more enhancement and enrichment activities in the future.

  • What was planned?

    This case study describes how a range of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) professionals and ambassadors devised a series of enhancement and enrichment activities for schools.

  • What was done, and how?

    This case study describes a series of classroom-based activities for Key Stage 4 pupils devised by Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) professionals and ambassadors.

  • Impact

    This case study describes the outcome of a series of classroom-based activities for Key Stage 4 pupils devised by Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) professionals and ambassadors.

  • Lessons learned and next steps

    This case study describes what was learned from a series of classroom-based activities for Key Stage 4 pupils devised by Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) professionals and ambassadors.
