Bring learning to life

What are they?

A Smallpeice Trust Think Kit comes with the tools and resources to start or help sustain a STEM Club for up to 20 students in a school. Each kit complements the National Curriculum in science, technology, engineering and maths and lets teachers bring these subjects to life in new ways.

Our Think Kits are even more vital during these challenging times when many students are behind in their education. Research shows that the impact of the pandemic has affected the most vulnerable students the hardest. Those from disadvantaged backgrounds often remained shut out when their schools closed for a third of the academic year.

We urgently need additional sponsors to help us reach more young people who are behind in their education and who would benefit most from a hands-on project to develop invaluable skills in resilience, problem-solving, and critical thinking.


Our Powered Glider Think Kit enables up to 20 students to get fully hands-on in the world of STEM. Teams of four students put their engineering skills to the test as they are challenged to design and build a powered glider that travels the furthest over two flights.
