About

Crumble

UK STEM offers a comprehensive service to support the use of Crumble software hardware. We’ve worked very closely with the Crumble developers since the software was created. We have run over 50 teacher training courses and delivered hundreds of hours of activities with children on all ages (from 8 – adults and beyond).

We are soon announcing the publication of our first book of the Crumble Cookbook series – featuring lights, switches and sensors. Find out more here.

Teacher Training/ Consultancy

Mike Cargill is the lead teacher trainer and is frequently commissioned to undertake education research and development for a range of clients. Teacher training is generally bespoke courses focusing on specific areas of STEM and/or engineering. Most courses are delivered in the client’s venue either in the UK and abroad.

Recent international venues include Dubai, Baku, Beijing and Wuhan (pre-Coronavirus!). If you have a training need then please contact Mike Cargill for an informal discussion, following which you can request a detailed training plan and quotation.

Alongside the development of bespoke educational resources for any age group the educational consultancy service also includes analysis of training availability for any UK region, specifying training courses and managing the tendering process from local training providers.

Global STEM Award

We are proud to present the Global STEM Award! This three tiered award comes in Bronze, Silver and Gold and requires the completion of 2, 4 or 7 exciting projects respectively.

Control Freak

For the past 3 years, we have run successful Control Freak courses featuring Crumble and Vex at Hull University. Last year, we ran our first course at Pocklington School!

We have just released our first range of Control Freak products featuring The Cub – find out more about this here.

International Programme

UK STEM is uniquely placed to support groups from outside the UK who want to experience what STEM is like in the UK. We offer a range of hands-on STEM project days from robotics to structures and electric car racing. We organise university and STEM centre visits and we help you secure local accommodation or homestay at very competitive prices.
