Family STEM Ideas
 
Here are ideas linked to Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths that you could work on as a family. 
 
  • Using Lego or similar products, or junk modeling, what can you design and make? What might you do in the future to improve it? 
  • Design a gadget in your book that would make your life easier or more efficient, or would improve somebody else's life or job. Include a labelled diagram and explain what it does, and how.
  • Take photographs of any cooking or baking they do or write the recipes in their books and draw a picture of it. 
  • Pick 5 items from your fridge or cupboard. How might you combine them to make a balanced meal to feed your family?
  • Analyse different food packaging considering the environment, cost, 
  • Design a package for a certain food product (especially if they have made something)
