Find Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics experiences for your class

Teacher FAQs

What are the STEM Directories?

The STEM Directories are an easy way to find Enhancement and Enrichment (E&E) opportunities to support your science, engineering, design and mathematics teaching. Some schemes bring exciting activities into your school, others can provide a memorable day out for your students or a nationwide competition to help motivate your science club. They might involve bringing a real scientist, engineer or mathematician into the classroom, give your students access to equipment not readily available or simulate real-life applications of science and technology. Many schemes can provide supporting teaching materials to help get the most of the activity.

You can also read comments left by other teachers who have used the scheme and rate schemes that you have hosted. Click to search or browse schemes.

What are STEM E&E Grants?

We currently run two grant schemes which teachers from UK schools can apply to.

How do I make an enquiry or book an activity from the STEM Directories?

You can contact the individual scheme provider using the contact details provided on their activity description, or follow the link to their website. We cannot take bookings on the STEM Directories site.

How are activities selected for the Directories?

Activity providers are free to submit suitable schemes to the site. Please note inclusion in the directories is not an endorsement of a particular company or their products. Schemes may provide general risk assessments upon request, however, these require modification to suit local conditions and teachers should always carry out an assessment in line with their own school health and safety policy.

How do I report an activity with out-of-date or inaccurate information? 

Please get in touch with the details of the activity and we will be happy to investigate.
