The Bloodhound Project Learning resources - Up to 11 years

The BLOODHOUND Education Programme has developed a range of resources ideas for teachers to use when planning their lessons for children aged up to 11 years old.

Use any of these to help you bring STEM subjects to life, with activities based on the BLOODHOUND Project. They correspond to the UK National Curriculum but can also be adapted to suit wider ages and abilities.
