Family learning

Virtual STEM boxes for families

As part of their Skills Escalator, West Suffolk College have created STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Boxes for home schooling. These practical hands-on activities are used in primary schools across the region and are safely designed, specifically for the children to carry out themselves. They have been made virtual and modified for parents and carers with home-schooling in mind. Simply follow the link below, register for free and you’ll be sent a link for the STEM boxes - each contains simple guidance, so you don’t need to be a scientist to have fun and support your child in STEM!
