DreamSpace Hacking STEM in the Primary Classroom
Bring STEM into your classroom by attending the first DreamSpace teacher summer school to explore how teachers can create inquiry and project-based activities focused on STEM (and STEAM) that can be used across the primary curriculum. Using a wide range of digital tools and maker activities, participants will explore ways they can change their own practice to better support STEM learning. Hands-on activities include coding and Maker Space challenges using MakeCode, Micro:Bit and Arcade, with content provided to all participants through Microsoft Teams and OneNote. After this, you can bring a bit of DreamSpace back to your classroom for next year.
