11-14 cross-curricular projects in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM)
Welcome to STEM 11-14 projects
Our cross-curricular projects give 11-14 year olds the opportunity to apply STEM knowledge and skills to solve topical problems. Project work in authentic STEM contexts leads to a better understanding of how these disciplines (along with engineering) interact in the real world.
- Futures challenges pupils to consider how humans could live more sustainably, learning from closed loop natural systems.
- Games involves activities to explore fitness, fairness, and the design of games and sports equipment.
Download or DVD
Project resources for both Futures and Games are available to download free of charge from this site. Alternatively, email Nuffield Research Placements and request a free DVD of both sets of resources.
Why cross-curricular STEM?
Our STEM projects are based on a skills led approach, encouraging group work, reflective learning and application of STEM. They motivate students, develop their learning skills and give them the opportunity to tackle authentic, complex problems over an extended period of time.
