Technology for Fun

I provide CPD sessions for primary school teachers to enable them to run fun, engaging STEM activities in their schools. My standard day rate is  £300 plus expenses. Travel is £0.45 per mile from Gloucestershire. Recommended number of attendees is around 15.

Material costs are £5 per head for electrical projects (fan boats, vibrating brush monsters & motorised buggies), £1 per head for mechanical projects (CD racers, balloon buggies & Cartesian divers) and £15 per head for computer controlled projects (lighthouses & traffic lights).

I have posted Technology for Fun STEM workshops for teachers or pupils on the STEM Directory. You can apply for grant funding, e.g. from the Royal Institution, to run a workshop (scroll down to Grants for school - Find Out More). Applications for this open in September - roughly 75 out of 300 applications were successful last year, with priority given to disadvantaged schools.
