STEM – Minecraft and Space

For those ‘Minecraft’ fans out there, you can currently download free a free education collection, which includes things like exploring the International Space Station, exploring the human eye, becoming a marine biologist and an energy power challenge. There are also non-STEM related activities too.

For the real thing Nasa, are also offering an online exploration of the International Space Station together with lots of other fun space related activities online.

STEM – Home Learning Videos

I have uploaded this weeks STEM home learning videos for different areas of the school to watch and possibly try at home.

Again, these can be watched and discussed on Seesaw with your teachers or you can try some of the activities and again share this on Seesaw.

The videos are split into different levels, early, first and second. However, any child can watch any video and contribute however they want.

Also, please also watch this weeks Science Story and share your answer by voting.

I look forward to hearing, on Seesaw, how you use these videos.

Please also share if you have been doing any other STEM related activities at home that I could share with other children in next weeks videos.

Good luck.
