Excitement and Wonder of Science Aberystwyth University

A new Welsh medium science website for 7-16 year old pupils has been launched by Aberystwyth University education publisher CAA Cymru.

Cyffro a Rhyfeddod Gwyddoniaeth (Excitement and Wonder of Science), has been developed to stimulate thinking and encourage pupils to explore further scientific questions that arise in their everyday lives. The resource has been sponsored by the Welsh Government and authored by Cerian Angharad of Cardiff based STEM consultancy See Science.

Science Enhancement Experience (SEE) STEM Challenges

Science Enhancement Experience (SEE) was created and developed by See Science. The challenges are designed to facilitate learning, team working and encourage pupils' curiosity to find out how and why things work.

The SEE resources were produced thanks to the generous support from the Welsh Government's National Science Academy.

Primary STEM Challenges

The challenges are designed to facilitate learning, team working and encourage pupils' curiosity to find out how and why things work. During the challenge the pupils develop their problem solving, communication and innovation skills.

You can download the primary STEM Challenge resources here and the teacher notes for the challenges (both primary and secondary) here.

Secondary STEM Challenges

During the challenge the pupils develop their problem solving, communication and innovation skills. All secondary pupils who complete the challenge can register for a Discovery CREST Award.

You can download the secondary STEM Challenge resources here and the teacher notes for the challenges (both secondary and primary) here.

Chemistry in the Primary Classroom

The upper KS2 workshop consists of four practical activities that pupils undertake in groups, each linked to a real-world chemist's role. 

The activities include pH testing and identifying unknown white powders while the real-world chemistry covered during the session ranges from Environmental Chemistry to Forensics and even polymer manufacture.
