Recognising the professional development
needs of STEM club leaders.
This free, twilight course is intended for anyone who is currently running or is considering running any kind of extra-curricular STEM club. The session has been organised by Liz Carter from the Warwick school. Liz recently ran a very sucessful STEM Clubs CPD session focusing on the 'big issues' with STEM Clubs and how to overcome them. This event will focus on fun physics activities, and will be led by Ian Wilson.
STEM club leaders will be guided through a range of activities covering many aspects of the physics curriculum such as sound, light, forces, electricity and magnetism, space. Whilst the activities have been selected because they are fun and should inspire and enthuse students in a club setting, they also provide plenty of learning opportunities which will be promoted.
The first 15 leaders to sign up will be given a pack of resources to take back to their own schools to use with their own clubs. This will include materials for making jitter bugs, colour LEDs for investigating light and colour mixing, simple motor components, cosmic balls for investigating conductivity and a rocket kit.
The session will be very hands-on with lots of opportunity for the leaders to share ideas and network with each other. There will also be a circus of demonstration activities – such as Lenz’s Law. Making and using videos will also be discussed.
If you have any questions, please contact Liz Carter here.
The STEM Clubs Network would like to thank the following organisations who have worked in collaboration to make this course possible. This course is being run by Liz Carter at the Warwick School, with the support of the STEM Clubs Network.

STEM clubs allow children to explore the STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and maths) in a stimulating learning environment, free from the constraints of the curriculum.
The STEM Clubs Network is an affiliation network for schools interested in supporting STEM club activities and STEM club leader professional development. It is completely free to join and affiliation will grant you full access to www.stemclubs.net.//
