Sports themed STEM resources

There is something for everyone as we combine a love of games with engineering, showcasing a variety of ways that STEM influences sports as well as different STEM career paths.

With the London Marathon in mind, we look at researching smart materials when designing costumes and map out the landmarks runners will pass. We also look at measurements of time by racing to be the slowest! Describe players in the football World Cup using fractions and percentages and select a team using data and strategy. Then develop your team’s logo and podcast covering a sports event. And finish by making biscuits for international competitions with national flags on them.

All of our activities come with lesson plans and presentations that are mapped to the curricula and a great excuse to get your class excited about sports and active in the classroom.

And please do share your learning highlights and final creations with us on social media @IETeducation or send them via email to to be featured in our online gallery.
