At Roe Valley Integrated Primary School we love all things STEM!

What is STEM, I hear you ask?

STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.  STEM focuses on  enquiry-based learning and it is aimed to:

  • Stimulate innovative teaching approaches
  • Encourage pupils to make learning connections across subjects
  • Enable pupils to see how STEM relates to the world

STEM gives children the chance to explore aspects of SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING and MATHS.

It can be about maths puzzles or even engineering.

Children are naturally curious and often ask profound questions about themselves and The World Around Us. STEM helps pupils to explore and find age-appropriate answers to some of these big questions. Our aim is to help improve team work and leadership skills, improve confidence and engagement in STEM as well as increased motivation to study STEM.
