We’ve put together a list of science and mathematics resources for Key Stage 3 students and those undertaking their GCSE’s and A-levels, containing our own resources and those of well-respected organisations and campaigns in the UK. These resources can help to support secondary school teachers and parents while students are learning from home. At secondary level, a focus on exploring how STEM skills are used in the real world and potential careers in science in particular may be useful.
Global challenges: as part of the Commonwealth Science Class project, the Royal Society, in collaboration with the British Council, has produced four resources that are particularly relevant to the teaching of climate science and sustainability.
Summer Science Online: A week of science at home, with talks, videos and highlights from previous exhibitions and from the Society's archives. A catch-up playlist will be available via the Royal Society's YouTube channel.
Your science out there: Professor Tamsin Mather, winner of the Royal Society Rosalind Franklin Award 2018, has used her award grant money to develop a set of teaching resources focusing on women researching in STEM.
Engineering challenges to try at home: Dyson engineers have designed these challenges specifically for children. Ideal for home or in the classroom, they encourage inquisitive young minds to get excited about engineering.
Oak National Academy: the new Oak National Academy is an online classroom and resource hub, created by teachers for teachers but with additional support for parents. Supported by the Department for Education, this site contains a wealth of information to support learning from home across many subjects.
BBC Bitesize Daily Lessons: lessons created by the BBC with teachers and other educational experts, featuring a mix of videos, animations, practice activities, quizzes and games.
