A RANGE of free innovative STEM activities have been unveiled by a Glasgow-based IT consultancy firm.

Company CGI launched its STEM from Home activities in the wake of the coronavirus lockdown.

The aim is to engage children and allow them to learn all about science, technology, engineering and maths.

The global services company, headquartered in Glasgow, is hoping the activities will also motivate young people to consider a future career in the field.

A weekly resource pack, it is aimed at children between the ages of six and 14, although anyone can get involved.

There are activities about robotics, coding, the environment, sport and healthy living as well.

For instance, the first resource pack will help children learn the basics of coding and design by learning to write their very own game.

CGI says there is enough content to keep children engaged for up to 12 weeks, with a view of creating and developing more material.

Lindsay McGranaghan, CGI business until leader for Scotland, said: “Everyone at CGI loves STEM and everything about technology.

“Children are the next generation of tech geniuses and our team in CGI adore passing on our knowledge.

“We want as many of children as possible to get into STEM and we can’t think of a better way to do it than through STEM from Home.

“I hope parents and children download our free packs and enjoy what they provide.

“We want them to learn something that’s fun, and also the key to all our futures.”
