Why create The Virtual Explorers Club?

As a primary school teacher I quickly realised there were never quite enough hours in the day to plan everything from scratch, as a parent and a teacher my time vanished altogether and I’m sure many of you will empathise!

Having a starting point is really helpful, there’s Google and Pinterest, but you end up stuck in a rabbit warren and still don’t always come back with the answer you were looking for.

But what if it was already done for you? That’s why The Virtual Explorers Club was born!

Did you know only around 3% of primary school teachers are science specialists and many lack confidence in teaching science…you are not alone!

My aim is to empower you to do it yourself. By producing carefully planned, fun, engaging and tested STEM activities you:

don’t need to be an expert

don’t need lots of time

don’t need lots of specialist kit

don’t need to worry it won’t work

Instead, you will:

feel confident to enjoy practical learning

help nurture their understanding

enjoy quality time together

see their eyes light up as they make a new discovery

share their “Wow” moments

STEM is for everyone, it doesn’t need to be complicated, it’s not a big secret. The Virtual Explorers Club, it’s STEM made simple!
