With STEM clubs becoming more and more popular in schools we thought it would be useful to take you through our favourite products and hopefully give you some inspiration.
Our team have taken this well loved pass time and created a kit that will enable students to study the science behind the game.
Designed to encourage mathematical thinking the kit allows students to study the effects of friction, types of surface and plane angles on the speed of the ‘bowling’ balls in a fun and engaging way. It is perfect for students of all science abilities as everyone can relate to this game.
The kit comes with everything you need, including Teacher notes and is all kept nice and tidy in a Gratnells tray. Fizzy drinks and hot dogs are, sadly, not included.

Bare Conductive have a range of products that provide tools to teach students of all ages about electronics. These products definitely teach through fun and creativity so will allow the class to learn about resistance, circuitry and voltage.
We particularly love the Touch BoardTM Starter Kit, which allows you to change your environment by turning surfaces, objects or spaces into sensors.
The kit comes ready to just plug in and play as well as loads of great tutorials, guides and project examples to keep your STEM club busy for hours! We have heard it is good for big kids too – but we wouldn’t know anything about that.

If your class like Lego then we think they will love Arckit. Focusing more on the Engineering element of STEM these kits allow budding architects to express their creativity by building structures based on today’s contemporary techniques.
The Arckit system can be used across both physical and digital platforms and even has the capability to incorporate bespoke 3D printed components if the group get really creative.
