STEM based activities for children aged 6-14

We’ve seen great success with our full and half day STEM camps across the UK in partnership with local schools and communities. 25 camps have been held in the last year, engaging more than 150 CGI volunteers and reaching more than 900 students.

Since the advent of the Covid-19 pandemic, our STEM camps have been running virtually in the form of our STEM from Home activity packs!

Recognising the difficulties that parents face when balancing remote working and childcare, we created weekly STEM based activity packs that you can do at home with your children.

 

The activities are aimed at students aged 6-14, but everyone can get involved! Activities encompass all aspects of STEM, including coding, environmental sustainability and robotics. There will be a range of activities each week, involving activities with technical, practical and physical elements.
