Getting started

Our audience

GSK STEM Education has been developed to inspire Key Stage 3/third and fourth level students by bringing to life the amazing world of science through real-life examples.

Although our resources are created with these students in mind, the materials can be adapted to engage younger students. You can find out how here.

Using our resources

Choose from films, hands-on Lab activities and Independent learning materials. You could use these as a basis for problem-based learning, or creating your own scientific enquiry across one or more lessons.

Our teachers’ notes also provide additional hints and tips for carrying out activities as well as the relevant curriculum links.

Our website is constantly growing, so do come back to download more and build your bank of lesson plans.

Registering on the site gives you the additional benefit of having unlimited access to our ever-growing body free science materials, including teachers' notes and will enable you to hear about new events and plans for the programme.

"The appeal of this website is that it offers a suite of resources (‘a one stop shop’) that can be used for a series of lessons or as standalone resources." Gillian, Head of Biology, teaching 11-18 year-olds
