NUSTEM loans boxes are linked to STEM careers and contain original objects and replicas that can be handled and used as part of classroom activities. While using the resources in the boxes, children get the opportunity to try out and explore some of the skills, techniques, equipment and ideas that STEM professionals use on a day-to-day basis.
Our light, dark and shadows box has a dark den, variety of lights and torches, a light box and different transparent and translucent materials to encourage children to investigate light, dark and shadows.
