Motivate – Inspire – Reward
The Global STEM Awards scheme rewards students for completing STEM activities and provides a framework to encourage higher levels of engagement in learning. Alongside completing their STEM activities children are asked to think globally and find out about careers linked to the activity.
Projects can range from creating Crumble space-buggies to making flower-seed bombs – they can be anything you want! Get creative!
CANDOO® is a fun and engaging game designed to get your students thinking about and discussing careers. It can be played as a game on its own or built into wider careers activities in your classroom. The aim of the game is to collect your careers path in front of you, made up of genuine qualifications and skills that are needed for your career. Play life experience cards on your path in the form of bonuses – or play one on someone else’s path in the form of redundancy – or even career change. All life experience cards are based on real-life scenarios that could happen in the course of your career – both good and bad!
CANDOO comes with wraparound activities that integrate the game into your career-related learning. These will be available on our website when the game is released. Suitable for ages 12+; 2-6 players. CANDOO meets the career-related learning requirements for the Global STEM Award.
