STEM competition designed on behalf of Tees Valley Careers is promoting sustainability.

Learn by Design are delighted to be working with Tees Valley Careers as a Careers Activity Provider.

STEM/STEAM Competition designed and developed by Learn by Design.

The ‘STEM Challenge competition’ will link STEM/STEAM subject matter to local industry, identifying possible career and learning pathways for the pupils. The ‘live’ streaming sessions will set the scene for the competition and will also involve ambassadors/employer representatives which the pupils will be able to directly engage with, asking questions and discovering more about the opportunities available to them. Follow up materials which can be completed in groups, individually or with family/parents/guardians at home will also be provided.

The competition entries will then be judged and the top three teams from each local authority area will be invited to attend a celebration event where the pupils display their entries and pitch their ideas to some of the ‘ambassadors’ face to face and to take part in a series of STEM activities delivered by Learn by Design.

The top five winning entries (one from each local authority area) will receive a full ‘hands-on’ stem experience day for their school or selected year groups.

Project Outline:

  • Number of primary schools: up to 140 (approx. 28 per local authority)

  • Local Authority coverage: Darlington, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Redcar and Cleveland and Stockton

  • Key Stage/s: Key Stage 1 and 2

  • Number of students: 8,000+

  • Delivery format: Online engagement will be employed initially to onboard schools/teachers and to set a STEM/STEAM based competition to pupils. This will be supported with downloadable resource, video and live streaming sessions, followed by a ‘celebration’ event to involve winning teams from a variety of schools, whereby ‘hands-on’ science activities will form the interactive element of the ‘programme’.
