What is Discovery Education STEM Connect?

What is Discovery Education STEM Connect?

Discovery Education STEM Connect offers a suite of resources for KS1, KS2 and KS3 which are designed to be used flexibly either within timetabled lessons, or in after-school STEM clubs. Hands-on tasks and challenges provide real-world context and urgency to learning and enable pupils to bring together knowledge from science, maths and design & technology.

STEM education is about preparing for what’s next, presenting relevant problems the next generation will have to solve. With the enquiry process at the heart of STEM Connect, each unit is structured to encourage pupils to:

• Ask questions to understand the precise nature of the challenge presented

• Plan how to conduct investigations to build knowledge and check assumptions

• Design solutions, iterate and evaluate their effectiveness

Identify future careers

STEM Connect uses relatable scenarios that bring out pupils’ creativity while guiding them to develop and apply knowledge and skills to important real-world challenges. Challenges also shed light on different STEM careers, helping pupils identify future professions. The context for each challenge is set through videos, image galleries and fact files, while worksheets guide pupils through the hands-on activities.

STEM made simple

Real-world global challenges

STEM education is all about preparing for what’s next. STEM Connect pushes pupils to solve complex, global challenges that face society today and tomorrow, and to show how they can make an impact in addressing these challenges themselves – even from a young age.

Career connections

STEM Connect provides pupils with opportunities to learn about diverse STEM careers in context and connects the skills they are using to real work happening around the world.

Connect learning across the curriculum

STEM Connect asks pupils to draw on their existing subject knowledge across disciplines from science, maths, design and technology to literacy, art and geography and apply it to some of the world’s most challenging problems.

Flexible framework

Whether you are supplementing your curriculum timetable or want to supercharge your STEM club, the resources in STEM Connect can be used flexibly depending on the time available to you. Challenges can be completed in one go or extended to a longer multi-session project.

Hands-on experience

Hands-on challenges are at the heart of STEM Connect and have been designed to be completed without any special equipment using common items that schools should be able to source easily. The practical nature of the challenges means you don’t need a large number of devices to use the content.

Detailed teacher guidance

Unit overviews and detailed notes mean teachers can just “pick up and go,” whatever their level of familiarity with the topics being covered.
