To support parents and carers with home learning, the subject experts of STEM Learning (UK-based STEM platform) have put together a selection of activities and materials. These include a wide range of free resources, guidance and professional development opportunities for teachers and educators, tips and resources for parents, daily activities as well as a 'homeschooling survival guide'. The lesson materials and resources are organised per topic (e.g. biology, chemistry, physics, computing, etc.), each with their own support pages and resources. STEM Learning's experts are available for support via webchat on weekdays between 08.30 - 16.30 (UK time). 


An additional 'home teaching' page will be launched later this week. This page will be focused on support for schools and teachers delivering lessons remotely.


STEM Learning's digital support platform proved extremely popular and recieved over 100.000 users in its first ten days. The portal is currently Google's top recommendation for home learning in the UK. The platform and all resources are free to access for everyone.
