STEM Toolkit

A stack of Hi5 Stem Activity Toolkits are arranged showing colourful interior pages with lots of graphics.

The Hi5 Award STEM Toolkit is a fantastic new resource to support involving young people in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) activities that are fun, educational and engaging.

STEM has been identified as a high priority for all young people in Scotland as part of their ongoing education and in addressing any skills-gap in the developing workforce.

Our toolkit features 50 activities that all feature the following:

  • Instructions on how to complete each activity
  • What you need to run the activity
  • Which STEM categories are being used in the activity
  • Helpful hints, where useful
  • Helpful diagrams, where useful

The pack is 148mm x 148mm, full colour, ring-bound and has sturdy, laminated cover to protect the contents.

We also have a Games Toolkit that features 50 fun play and game activities for young people.

Remember when leading activities it is your responsibility to ensure you use age appropriate materials and equipment. In particular be aware and take any necessary precautions when using certain materials with children and young people such as:

  • magnets
  • sharp objects
  • matches
  • liquids;

and be aware of any risks associated with the environment you’ll be working in.

Children and young people should be supervised at all times and your own organisation’s Health and Safety policy and any other relevant policies should be followed.
