STEM Projects

This STEM challenge which is open to 9-11 year olds encourages pupils to design and race an F1 in Schools Primary Class race car. Complete with wheels, body and even a model driver, teams compete at a regional event for prestigious awards and could potentially be crowned the Wales Regional Winners and have the opportunity to represent Wales at the UK National Finals.

Our latest blended learning STEM Project challenges teams of students to design, build and program their own smart micro-greenhouse. EESW will deliver coding sessions, alongside full class packs including programmable BBC Micro:bits, environmental control boards, sensors and components, plus how-to guides, videos & cross curricular lesson plans.

FLL is a global science and technology competition for teams of students, to encourage an interest in real world issues and develop key skills that are crucial for their future careers. The students work together as a team and explore a given scientific topic and plan, program and test an autonomous robot to solve several missions.


In School Workshops

EESW Speed Challenge is a fantastic two-hour taster session where pupils get to have a glimpse into the exciting world of F1 racing! 

If you are after some serious fun and maybe a taster of our F1 in Schools project, this is one to get booked in!

This session is perfect for KS2 years 4-6 and we can accommodate up to 30 pupils per workshop.  

In this BBC Micro:bit workshop, students are guided through a series of challenges where they will write code using a 'Scratch' style interface to move a Microbit robot through a series of tasks. The children will then code a transmitter and receiver, turning their robot into a remote control vehicle with which they can compete with one another, adjusting their code throughout to improve their robot's performance.

This session is suited for KS2 years 5-6 and we can accommodate up to 30 pupils per workshop.  

In EESW's Wind Turbine workshop, pupils to learn how a wind turbine works, how they are engineered and constructed. Working in small teams, pupils use our wind turbine model kits to build and measure energy generated. By adjusting their design, each team is tasked to create and record the most efficient wind turbine.

This session is suited for KS2 years 5-6 and we can accommodate up to 30 pupils per workshop.  




Free Online Resources

Get started with learning to code with our fun Scratch tutorials! EESW's step by step video guides start at the very beginning and allow pupils to explore and build a range of coding skills.

Using the online Scratch editor pupils will create their own games and more! You only need a computer or tablet!

Introduce hardware to your coding skills with our Coding with Micro:bit tutorials. Following our video tutorials, pupils can use the micro:bit’s built in sensors and household items to create functioning games!

Requires BBC Micro:bit. Class packs of 10 micro:bits can be loaned from EESW.
