Quick, creative science, technology, engineering and mathematics activities for 5–11-year-olds.

Full of engaging and practical ideas, the 15-Minute STEM series of books reassures teachers and parents that they don’t need to be experts to deliver high-quality STEM education.

Each book contains 40 STEM activities, including step-by-step instructions, which take just 15 minutes to complete and can be resourced from everyday materials found in the classroom or at home. This means that, with minimal preparation, teachers and parents can slot these cross-curricular activities into an otherwise busy day – simultaneously broadening children’s learning and piquing their curiosity about the world around them.

Accompanying instructions are phrased in a way that encourages the children to lead the learning and exploration, and opportunities for further investigation are provided in order to broaden the learning focus. Hand-drawn illustrations and full colour photographs are also included alongside each activity to give an idea of what the end results might look like.

The activities make connections to real-world scenarios and have been linked to conceptually similar STEM-related careers – all of which are individually profiled in a glossary at the back of the book. The practical, problem-solving element of each activity offers a great way for children to develop important soft skills such as creativity, critical thinking and spatial awareness. Suitable for both educators and parents of young children.
