NUSTEM is an outreach group based at Northumbria University. We believe that STEM should be accessible to everyone, for study and for pleasure, from early years, through school, to employment, and beyond. We support children, families and teachers to feel more confident that a career in STEM is for ‘people like them’.
Your child or children have been using one of our NUSTEM loans boxes in class. 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.
This term, children in Key Stage 2 have been using our Electricity and SAMlabs loans boxes. For more information about the loans boxes, STEM careers and activities to try at home, visit our and our Electricity loans box page and our SAMlabs loans box activity page.
