11-14 cross-curricular projects in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM)

Introductory lesson

In this introductory lesson, pupils start with a game that demonstrates the need for careful planning and collaboration. Following a trial run, they use feedback to help them establish a standard operating procedure. Finally, they evaluate their success after playing the game again.

Success in The Games will depend on pupils working together as teams. They will learn about the need to respect each other's skills and opinions, both when undertaking the activities and when they compete against each other playing the game. These activities are inspired by London 2012.
