STEM Resources

This page will evolve as we discover/contact new resources/organisations which help schools and pupils improve their interest and attainment and in or focus areas.  If you know of any links/contacts please email us so we can share with other schools.

EdufundUK do not specifically endorse any of the organisations below - we offer them as information only for teachers to evaluate.


Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths

STEM Learning

A fantastic website for all UK Key Stages.

  • A wide range of  well organised, free resources covering the National Curriculum topics, enrichment, careers and more.
  • Opportunities to connect with a STEM Ambassador to visit and support your school... for FREE.
  • Links to their STEM community where staff can offer advice and support each other.


EduFund have been very supportive and encouraging throughout the process. They have taken time out of their schedule to come and see what goes on in schools and have supported our STEM work beyond what I could have hoped for.

  - John Warner School, December 2019


  • The STEM Ambassador Hub for Hertfordshire (based in Stevenage)
  • Resources, funding, workshops, CPD, loan kits, awards, apprenticeships and much more
  • Connect with industry ambassadors who will visit your school
  • It’s worth looking at the other area hubs as they have different free resources and activities (e.g. these themed STEM at Home activities that don’t require any specialised resources)

 All About STEM

  • Focussed around Cheshire/Merseyside but with a list of links and resources to help plan effective STEM teaching nationwide.

The Fuse School

FREE - Hundreds of maths and science videos

STEM Taster Courses

There are many of these - a particularly good one is the Sutton Trust Summer School which provides 1 week's free course, activities, accommodation, food and travel for KS5 pupils considering a degree in a STEM subject.

Other course directories can be easily searched for e.g.  

Space Careers UK STEM course summer schools directory  :  All sorts of courses in STEM subjects, not just for "space cadets".

Imperial College, London STEM Potential Programme:   Y10 - 13 day and summer courses 


Science Focus

British Science Week

(Around March each year)  FREE live and interactive events including Robokids Space Show, Incredible Oceans, Science careers talks etc.  Click Here!

  • In response to COVID-19, the SE region STEM Ambassador Hub have added an exciting new section to their website! called STEM@home. With the aim of supporting home learning for parents/carers, it can also be used in schools with reduced numbers. Activities will be posted by topic. There are some suggested questions and ideas that can be asked and none of the activities require specialist equipment.
  • We have the following topics live now: 

    • Space
    • Dinosaurs
    • Structures
    • Environment
  • Resources - thousands of curriculum-linked, quality-assured STEM teaching resources.  They have good search filters and they are all free.
  • CPD with bursaries - both online and in person.
  • Enrichment activities including resources, setting up a STEM club and access to STEM ambassadors - volunteers from a wide range of science, technology, engineering and mathematics related jobs and disciplines across the UK. They offer their time and enthusiasm to help bring stem subjects to life and demonstrate their value in life and careers.
  • There are also STEM HUBS which coordinate STEM Ambassadors, activities and resources in particular regions of the UK.
  • They also stage events (physical and on line) such as the Virtual Science Jamboree for FREE

Space Teams

Exciting challenges each day of your two-week adventure.  Work as a team to earn rewards and space patches.  Suitable for future space professionals aged 7-11.

If anyone is looking for some activity ideas for the planets or space topic, the SpaceTeams project has a pdf of activities which you can use even if you don't want to sign up for the interactive project (which requires pupil emails).  The activities are cross-curricular and have a theme of settling on Mars.


 Maths Focus

THINK MATHS   Maths speakers delivering presentations and workshops in school.

  • Providing in-school seminars and workshops on a wide range of maths topics including maths in technology, sport, games and probability.
  • From the Website:  “Think Maths is a team of experienced mathematics speakers who visit schools to run workshops and give talks for a wide range of ages and abilities. Our sessions are interactive, engaging and cover mathematical content which will grab the attention of students and inspire them to get excited about maths.”
  •  They do charge but have links to external funding agencies.

    • The grants are designed to help integrate science, technology, engineering and mathematics activities into school practice and to support teachers’ professional development.
    • Activities enrich or go beyond the curriculum and must be chosen from the list of providers held at the STEM directories
