Invent and imagine day

In this day-long package, students will work scientifically to solve problems on their own and in groups. They will walk in the footsteps of an engineer, entrepreneur and inventor and explore the creative side of scientific discovery.

In this themed day, we explore the working scientifically methodologies and approaches in the National Curriculum for KS2 and KS3, and set challenges for your students to overcome using their knowledge and creativity. This fully comprehensive package will support your students in discovering the wonders of STEM in the world around us and show them how to apply their knowledge to real world problems in the 21st century.

A typical day can be made up of 1 assembly and up to 4 workshops.
