Pupils from Hemlington Hall Primary School have received 5 construction themed Get into STEM sessions. Get into STEM aims to develop the skills needed for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) related careers from an early age.
Provided by Esh Added Value the sessions are free and in connection with the new Cleveland Police Community Safety Hub which Esh Build are currently delivering. The construction themed kit introduces young children to STEM using fun and educational toys, books and tasks supporting all Key Stage 1 Learning outcomes. Developed in 2015 we have provided 71 schools in the North-East with Get into STEM sessions introducing 2,830 early learners from the region to construction and STEM concepts. Get into STEM has received regional recognition having won CECA North East Going the Extra Mile award in 2016 and shortlisting for a National CECA Inspiring Change Award.
Delivered in 5 sessions throughout the day students from nursery, reception, years 1&2 and a high needs base class from Hemlington Hall Primary will have opportunity to be involved in a 30-minute interactive STEM presentation. Children will take part in activities such as wall building, dressing up and measuring & design whilst having the opportunity to ask any questions about the Community Safety Hub.
Hemlington Hall Primary School will keep the Get into STEM kit for a two-week period allowing students to put their STEM skills into practise, during free play and structured class room sessions with the use of free STEM lessons plans that are provided for teaching staff.
