Making Learning Connections

STEM ‘Making Learning Connections’ was launched in late September 2009 and ended in March 2010. Over 40 teachers and more than 400 pupils from
18 primary and post-primary schools participated. In most cases teachers from a primary and post-primary school worked collaboratively to develop and deliver a thematically based STEM project which included links with local industries.

The school projects have been produced as ten case studies, six of which are accompanied by web based videos.
The case studies are intended to highlight the different ways that STEM can be promoted through the
Northern Ireland Curriculum. It is hoped that the case studies will provide teachers with some ideas for creating their own STEM projects.
