News Item: 'Nifty 4 Schools' Goes Full STEAM Ahead
Niftylift have unveiled its new free-to-download educational activities for primary and secondary schools.
Niftylift loves Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths (STEAM). Without STEAM their engineers wouldn’t have the necessary skills and knowledge to design, develop and manufacture the market-leading products that they sell around the world.
But it’s not just engineers that benefit from learning STEAM subjects at school…
Niftylift is made up of lots of departments with hundreds of people all doing different jobs, and understanding STEAM is an essential part of how they all work together effectively as a team.
So, they want to share their passion for STEAM, to help inspire young people to take their studies further and maybe one day become part of the diverse team at Niftylift.
For several years they've collaborated with local businesses via an annual STEM Festival, held at The Centre:MK. However, last year’s festival couldn’t go ahead, due to COVID-19 restrictions, so this year they've decided to hold a virtual event instead.
Timed to coincide with the start of British Science Week, each day they are unveiling a new STEAM-based activity on the website from the 5th to the 12th of March.
These activities are suitable for a range of ages and abilities and include a mixture of practical and theoretical. There are explanations of the manufacturing theories behind the activities and give real-world examples of how these theories are applied at Niftylift.
And don’t forget, the finalists will be announced for the STEAM poster competition on Monday (8th March), so keep an eye on NiftyLift's social media channels for your chance to help choose the winner.
