About the tour
The aim of the Primary STEM Tour is to design an itinerary packed with experiential, engaging and active learning experiences and provide a safe, professional environment for learning to take place. Students will develop their curiosity and play the role of an investigator using real forensic techniques and participate in coding and robotics workshops to design, engineer and build their own Lego EV3 robot. Surrounded by 2 million years of human history at the British Museum, students will develop their mathematical thinking before exploring over 100 exciting displays of aircraft from around the world at the Royal Airforce Museum. Students will visit the magnificent engine rooms of Tower Bridge and learn how the bridge works while enjoying the views over the River Thames, and discover amazing inventions and inspiring stories at the Science Museum. Finally, students will learn about the Industrial Revolution, the wonders of DNA, witness Florence Nightingale's diagrams and see the computer on which Tim Bernes-Lee invented the world wide web.
Build and design a robot to complete various engineering challenges.
Learn to code the flight patterns of drones using block programming or Swift programming language.
Visit exhibitions that celebrate more than 200 years of innovation in information and communication technologies.
Participate in inquiry-based learning workshops covering biodiversity and geography and meet Kew scientists to learn about their research and conservation projects around the globe.
Match shoeprints, dust for fingerprints, compare ink samples and play the role of an investigator using real forensic techniques.
Experience STEM in action and choose from a range of exciting workshops at the Cambridge Science Centre.
Participate in exciting, customised, educational workshops at some of the best museums in Europe, including the British Museum, Science Museum and Natural History Museum.
