With ScratchJr, young children (ages 5-7) can program their own interactive stories and games. In the process, they learn to solve problems, design projects, and express themselves creatively on the computer.
Sphero transforms the way pupils P1-S3 learn with a fun, comprehensive approach to STEAM (that's STEM + Art) and computer science. Our coding robots, design-and-build kits, curriculum, and engaging lessons and activities encourage exploration, imagination, and perseverance.
STEM Boxes from Forth Valley College (Primary)
CityFibre, the UK’s largest independent full fibre network, has teamed up with Stirling Science Festival and Forth Valley College to create a learning tool that helps local school pupils develop skills in STEM subjects.
The skills required to design, build and maintain our networks are focused on technology and are becoming more and more sought afterin an increasingly digital workforce.
Once again primary schools in Stirling will be able to loan STEM boxes from Forth Valley College.

Early Years STEM Gems
We are delighted to announce that we are offering free online Early Years workshops to sit alongside our Computational Thinking and Programming sessions. Designed to boost subject knowledge and confidence, this new workshop will introduce teachers to computational thinking in the Early Years and demonstrate Barefoot's Early Years resources. You can find out more here (click on the Early Years tab).
As well as launching our new Early Years workshop this term, we’ve also released our latest set of seasonal Early Years resources for Springtime! These 3 spring themed activities see the children make a rabbit run, create junk scarecrows and explore sequencing whilst planting seeds. You can download them here
Great initiatives and plans taking place via this network. Get involved!!

Ultimate STEM Challenge: My net zero community
This year bp’s Ultimate STEM Challenge invites young people to look at the things they can do locally and to use science and technology to come up with a net zero plan for their own community.
The challenge is aimed at primary and secondary pupils.
Even if you are not planning on taking part in the challenge, the resources are extremely interesting. The case studies demonstrate how we can make a change to our Cities.
