Description

Farming STEMterprise: engaging cross-curricular STEM projects for Key Stage 2

The agri-food industry is worth around £108 billion of GVA to our economy and provides over 3.7 million jobs. Where does STEM fit in? In an exciting practical session, we’ll be sticking elements of Ready Steady Cook, The Apprentice and Countryfile in a blender and producing some brilliant learning outcomes.

Presenting STEM learning within the context of engaging, real life problems gives children a sense of the purpose and direction of their learning, consequently improving their motivation and perseverance when tackling tricky topics.

As former primary school teachers, we understand the challenges faced by the profession and we have designed our resources with three main goals in mind: to save teachers time and reduce workload; to spark learners’ passion and enthusiasm for STEM subjects and to convey important messages about food and nutrition through a cross-curricular, project-based approach.

In this session, we will guide you through the NFU’s new cross-curricular project-based educational resources that use real life problems faced by the nation’s farmers and business owners as engaging contexts for learning.

Expect a session of ideas for exciting practical activities and projects and a free scheme of teaching and learning resources that will allow you to infuse your wider curriculum with engaging STEM learning opportunities.
