What is STEM? An approach to education which brings Science, Technology, Engineering and Math into the classroom in fun and innovative ways.
Kids become creative problem solvers and improve their English with engaging, fun, hands-on projects.
The Creator Series consists of four modules. Each module is 4 x 60-minute lessons taught by a qualified native speaker. In each module, kids will learn about different STEM topics and create their own amazing projects.
Here are some examples of the amazing projects kids will create with the Fantail Creator Series:
Pulley Crane – Kids build a pulley system and experiment with mechanical advantage! They’ll assemble a pulley-powered crane that can spin around, raise its arm, and lift loads. They’ll swap pulleys in and out to see first-hand how mechanical advantage makes it easier to lift things.

Shake Table – This module shakes things up! Kids will engineer their very own shake table that can simulate an earthquake! They’ll Build a motor-powered platform, complete with a spinner to make it quiver and quake. Then use foam balls and toothpicks to design a structure sturdy enough to withstand their shake table‘s shimmying.

Curious kids with an interest in creating cool science and engineering projects.
A2 or higher
Lessons 1 and 2 explore the topic through guided research and discussions on the topic area.
Lessons 3 and 4 will have the pupils building their creations and doing some experiments to test the theory and functionality of their projects. They will work individually and in small groups to test their designs and give a small presentation of their findings at the end of Lesson 4.
Yes! The price includes all materials.
Every crate includes high quality building materials (even motors, switches and batteries!), step-by-step instructions and an issue of Tinker Zine which is full of topical information and cool experiments.
YES!! Everyone gets their own Crate for each project which they will build in class and can take home at the end of the module!
