STEM Projects

BJPCE Limited have run a number of projects for the National STEM Centre in York and many of the resources remain free to use. These are listed below. We made very good use of our LEGO Robotics materials during these projects and the themes of both Space and Polar Exploration remain popular in our LEGO workshops.
