As part of our response to the COVID-19 pandemic, GSK STEM Education is supporting teachers and parents to help bring STEM to life whilst students continue to learn at home.
STEM at home experiments
We have launched our STEM at home series, which includes new fun and free practical experiments for parents and students to do together. They can be completed at home or in school, encouraging students to become lab scientists for the day to:
Discover chromatography and try the process used in labs to check if a medicine contains the right chemicals
Understand electrolysis through building a circuit with simple materials and make sodium hydroxide; one of the most used ingredients in making medicines
Measure their lung capacity and compare it with someone else’s in their household
GSK STEM Education learning resources
We have FREE curriculum-linked resources that are perfect for young people aged 11-14, to do at home.
There are a range of topics to discover, such as understanding how we breathe, how an arm works and exploring data science. Resources include independent student sheets and engaging hands-on activities that require little equipment and can be easily completed from home. Check out our at home filter to start exploring resources.
GSK is closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and is supporting global efforts to tackle the virus. Since the outbreak, we have been actively exploring ways to help, with our science and expertise, alongside protecting the health and wellbeing of our people and managing our global supply chains to support patients and consumers who depend on our products.
