These practical sessions will introduce pupils to four different elements of STEM learning, whilst giving them the chance to complete a Dynamic Youth Award (SCQF level 3).

  • Session 1: Construct a structure larger than themselves from paper, learn about planning and creating a structure and what makes a design strong.
  • Session 2: Learn how to recognise various map symbols, and create a map of the space you're in. Create a 3D model and make a map of it.
  • Session 3: Learn about constellations, why they exist and what they can be used for, and then learn about the breakdown of various planets. Design a rover that can travel across another planet.
  • Session 4: Think about forces, and how you can manipulate them. Investigate what affects forces.

DYW Context:
Young people will consider the skills they are using and will gain a Dynamic Youth Award as part of attending the course.

Additional Requirements:
The course will use a range of activities from the Youth Scotland ‘STEM Activity Toolkit’ which will require some easily sourced resources which will be communicated to the class lead teacher no less than 1 week prior to the session.

Other Info:
The course has the option of accreditation through the Dynamic Youth Awards, an SCQF level 3 qualification.
