Move2Learn4Teachers: co-design of Early STEM training and resources

The Move2Learn research project investigates how interactive museum exhibits and informal learning can be used to promote improved enjoyment and understanding of STEM in children.

Move2Learn4Teachers will engage and learn from leading STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education providers, teachers, and children in order to co-design meaningful and useful teacher training and materials that draw from, and inform, Move2Learn research. We will achieve this in close partnership with: two science centre organisations, a leading STEM educator training provider, and an experienced evaluator.

Output update

We are developing an Embodied Learning training course with our partners. To support the training we have developed and are in licensing conversations about STEM Charades game.
