In light of imminent school closures across the region, the STEM team at RTC North have developed an innovative way of keeping children entertained to support their development.
Experiment cards are available to download here that pupils can tap, from bouncing custard balls, cornflour slime, fake snow, vitamin c rockets, lollipop harmonicas and more.
This initiative is aimed at getting the younger generation to embrace STEM and RTC North has also launched a competition, where student can email their favourite STEM experiment, with the winning entries uploaded to social media.
There are also prizes for winning entries and a free hands-on STEM session up for grabs to the school with the overall winning entry.
Claire Willis, education relationship manager at RTC North, said: “These are challenging times ahead and we want to support schools and pupils in a range of fun and educational activities that can be done at home with parents.
“We can’t wait to see the competition entries and our aim is to not only provide some light relief and entertainment but also educate that STEM related activities are fun.”
