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. This session follows on from earlier STEM Clubs CPD sessions, but is open to anyone.
To allow you to access the full range of support and activities it is recommended that you also attend session 1 on 14th June - see the activity page here.
This course will enable you to:
- share your experiences of setting up a STEM Club
- help you begin to set up your own STEM club or develop an exisiting club
- draw on the experiences of others whilst planning STEM club activities
- walk away with a range of activty ideas which you can easily put into action
The advice, support and insight you will have acces to on this course is drawn from the collected experiences of the members of the STEM Clubs Network. Your trainer, Famida Noor Mahomed from Little Ilford School, will guide you through this whilst addressing your own individual needs.
What will happen in this session:
The session will start with an update on your STEM Club. Those who attended the previous CPD session will be able to feedback on how they have got on with the activity ideas from the previous session - how they used them, what worked, and what reccomenations they have for the future. There will also be time for networking and discussing any prblems or questions you may have with regards to your club.
The second part of the session will be focused on more activities. You will take part in two different activity sessions aimed to help you develop ideas for your own STEM Club, as follows:
Activity 1 is focused around water rockets.
Activity 2 will be about coming up with activity ideas for your own clubs. You will be able to draw on the experiences of others in the room and plan a series of activities to use next year with your clubs (or this term if you have time!).
Refreshments will be provided. If you have any questions, please contact Famida Noor Mahomed here. This course is free and open to all school staff, but signing up online is essential.
