The STEM Challenges are ten activities that
have been inspired by London 2012, focusing on a different aspect
of the preparations or the event itself. The resources are a
mixture of hands-on testing, experimental work and research, all
backed up with online resources.
Although the challenges are run as a competition and several of
the deadlines have passed, STEM Challenges encourages schools to
continue using the resources in class as all the resources are
curriculum linked. You can run the whole challenge again in school
or focus on a single aspect of the material which supports a
specific part of the curriculum.
