STEM

inPractice are passionate advocates for improving children’s access to digital literacy resources – especially for girls.

That’s why since 2013 inPractice has supported the STEM Ambassador programme to teach concepts of computing to children.

We created the Craft Computer Kit to make it easy for all schools and children to be able to understand the basics of a computer. We were amazed to see it adopted across the whole country and used as a staple for teaching ICT/Computing in Key Stage 1/2 groups.

We’ve taken part in activities at local Primary schools, taking groups to see the Raspberry Pi production line in Pencoed (read more here), as well as larger events like the GameCity Festival.

The Kit – Using Paper To Teach Computing!

We’re big fans of using paper. Easy to forget it was one of the first forms of technology for communicating! So what better way to help children learn about what’s under the hood of a computer than a paper craft computer?

It’s a set of resources that’s easy to distribute to an entire class as you just need paper, scissors and some glue.
