Macgyver science

The push is on to raise the bar in STEM and implement the new Design and Technologies contexts but who has the time or interest to bring innovative and engaging content to their students given all the other pressures modern teachers are required to bear? 

People might throw their hands up and ask “how do I do this”, the better question is possibly to ask is “what would MacGyver do”? Because if you ever saw him in action you know he came up with the solution using whatever was at hand.

With MacGyver Science we have the answer in the form of innovative projects designed to engage the students with practical, cost-effective and engaging experiments that push their understanding and interest in this area.
