Supporting Science,Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) at Home
STEM is a growing part of every day life and developing skills in Sciences, Technology, Engineering and Maths are a vital part of learning to succeed in the modern world. We use many of these skills at home, school and work without recognising what we do.
Having fun with these at home can reinforce skills taught at school and help children make real world links.
Adult Literacy and Numeracy
It is important to recognise that not everyone is confident in literacy, numeracy and digital skills. With that in mind we have put together the following, free, resources and websites that can support adult learning:
National Numeracy Challenge
This handy website is free to register, it will ask you some questions to understand your current numeracy level and then build your skills from there using real life examples. (Click image above).
BBC Skillwise is a tried and tested resource that can help improve adult literacy and numeracy.
