STEM Juniors



STEM Juniors requires a minimum of intermediate (B1) level English.


This course is suitable for students aged 10-13.

Academic Information

Workshops are run by Engineering and IT online training provider Semester Learning who work with companies including Siemens, GE, Amazon, Land Rover Jaguar and the NHS.

Students will undertake a new project each week of the course. In Week 1, students will create a model Dinosaur robot which has solar lighting, electric movement and simple hydraulic control and will gain an understanding of some of the different disciplines of engineering involved in its construction.  In week 2, students will design and build a robot of their choice using their kit, and develop a deeper understanding of some of the main engineering disciplines, through learning skills such as 2D and 3D design drawing and investigating how materials are used in the home.

To get started on their projects, students will receive a brand new solar and hydraulic 12in1 robot assembly kit.



What is in the solar and hydraulic 12in1 robot assembly kit?

The Sol Expert Solar hydraulics robot 12in1 79500 assembly kit contains 230 individual components that can be transformed into 12 different robot models. The models are operated with solar and water power, so no batteries are needed. The power supply is taken over by a solar cell, and the model starts moving in direct sunlight. Each model has a variety of functional and imitating movements, enabling students to switch between "climbing monkey", "mouth-opening crocodile", "T-Rex", "running bird ostrich", "scorpion", "zigzag-driving buggy" and more.

How many hours will I study for?

Students will have access to 5 hours of pre-course materials prior to starting the course. During the course, students will have 15 hours of STEM workshops and project work each week, plus two hours of skills and careers workshops. Sessions are broken up with regular breaks to ensure younger students have a balance between time on and off-screen. Sessions have been carefully structured to ensure students can join easily in most time zones.
