Online study options are becoming an invaluable tool to an increasing number of people locked down due to the pandemic. We are tracking what’s available – and here are a few for younger learners.

The opportunity to become a home astronaut certainly has a certain ring to it and with the International Space Station’s (ISS) space station explorers offering you can take a step closer to space. Providing a wide range of ‘learn-at-home activities’, users can participate in activities that ‘astronauts do on the space station’.

“We know many students are learning at home right now, and hands-on activities are especially important to keep students engaged and learning. Our network of ISS partners has pulled together dozens of no-cost activities for the whole family. After all, we are all in this together,” the programme website states.

Anything else?

There are so many great resources out there. Here’s a site with some amazing STEM activities for young students; one using gaming to engage students; a place to start your journey into science; and some free educational download options with Minecraft.

We’ll keep looking and share it all via our newsletter.
