Below is a list of resources to support teachers in delivering avtivity in Scienece Technology Engineering and Mathematics.
STEM Directories are a national resource for teachers. They list many of the regional and national schemes teachers can access to enhance and enrich the curriculum.
The STEM directories where launched in September 2008 at the BA Festival of Science. The aim of these directories, along with the National STEM framework, is to provide teachers and schools with a clear and coherent path to enrichment and enhancement opportunities in the UK.For more information on the STEM Directories visit www.stemdirectories.org.uk
The British Science Association's range of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math’s (STEM) enrichment activities aim to inspire and engage 5-19 year olds.
This aim is achieved through our nationally recognised CREST award schemes, support for STEM clubs, the National Science & Engineering Competition and collaborative events such as the Big Bang: UK Young Scientists' and Engineers' Fair.
Young people engage best with science that touches their own lives, for example in relation to food, health and public debates. Increasingly, their lives are linked with global issues and with people in other parts of the world, and science can help to make sense of this interdependence.
The Association for Science Education, the UK’s largest subject teaching association, brings you a free website to enrich your teaching and learning in science!

STEM teaching and learning resources: The National STEM Centre houses the UK's largest accessible physical library of resource materials to support the teaching and learning of science, design & technology, engineering and mathematics.
The collections range across materials for the 5 - 19 age group. Alongside contemporary resource materials including print, multimedia, and practical resources, is a growing archive collection, which showcases several decades of curriculum development. www.nationalstemcentre.org.uk
GAIM Activities are open-ended tasks where achievements in using and applying mathematics can be assessed alongside content. In the investigations students explore pure mathematics.
GAIM provides teachers with 80 Activities (40 Investigations and 40 Practical Problems) as a resource for teaching and assessment. These are open-ended…
