STEM kit in schools
Challenging and memorable
Alicia Brown, Stoke Damerel Community College, Plymouth

I use the MTa STEM kit for two quite different purposes.

I run weekly ‘constructioneering’ exercises with my year 7 – 9 maths club. The kids enjoy using the kit and find the activities challenging and memorable.  I think pupils who aren’t necessary that interested in STEM yet would benefit from using these activities too, so I’m hoping to work it into the curriculum for next year.

I also use it in PHSE (Personal, Health and Social Education) lessons to focus on personal skills.  I’ve found that it offers some really important learning opportunities: I’ve seen children develop their adaptability, resilience and problem-solving skills.  It’s great to see them improve their team skills and increase their engagement levels as the activities progress.

I am often asked when we can get the STEM kit out again.

It’s Easy to use, Easy to learn, Easy to deliver and very good value for money.
Staff Sergeant Frazer Stark, Defence Munitions Kineton

The instructors think it’s brilliant. Specifically, they talk about how they can take one MTa STEM kit and go anywhere and run any STEM activity. Plus, they love how tough the kit is. It’s hard wearing and has survived trips up and down mountains, across the country and the barracks.

They also love how dynamic the kit is.  We’ve used it with primary schools, secondary schools, colleges and even businesses who want to do some team building activities with us.  Even the range of individuals we use it with is impressive, from autistic children to engineering students; the kit works for all.

I can honestly say that I’ve never run a session where the students didn’t have a great time.
Chris Mossman, Chief Technician, Defence Munitions Kineton

Every single session is positive using the MTa STEM kit. It’s universally liked and with a clear brief anyone can be engaged with it.
This should be the first piece of STEM material you should buy. It’s versatile, it lasts and it’s cost effective. Combine it with a few laptops and a pneumatic rocket launcher and you’re all set to deliver STEM.
