Today Year 6 have been finding out about what happens underneath the ice in Antarctica. They then wrote their own poem about this. To Find out more and read some poems by children in other schools, visit our Underneath the Ice website page. You may even find their poems there soon!
Hello Burradon, we’re NUSTEM. We’re based at Northumbria University, and we work across the region supporting children, families and teachers in exploring science, technology, engineering and maths. We’re particularly keen to help people recognise that careers in these STEM subjects are available to them.
On this page you’ll find a summary of the things we’ve done with your school, and links to follow-up activities you can do at home.
Today Key Stage 1 children became materials scientists and investigated materials using weight, electricity and magnets. Why not investigate how strong the materials in your home are by trying our NUSTEM at home Bridge Building activity?
Today the children in Reception and Nursery became meteorologists. They were looking at the wind in particular and made windsocks and kites. A great activity for your meteorologist to try at home is the NUSTEM at home reflective mobile. All you need are any shiny materials you can find in your home and some glue.
