The snow has arrived and its a very clear crisp morning here at STEM Community HQ, the perfect time to launch our 
STEM Community advent calendar and annual chemist-tree and foraged wreath competition!

Advent Calendars are back and the jokes are even worse!!!

Each year since launch we have run a STEM Community adent calendar and this year is no exception. This year the gifts behind the doors are bigger and better than ever before! We have discount codes for courses, we have free access to training sessions, resources and free access to revision platforms and more. Each day we will open another door for you to explore what's on offer.  (Yes there is one calendar for 4-11 educators and one for 11-19 educators, but I'm not going to stop anyone checking both after all, you might have your own older/younger children, so why not explore both?)  

4-11 Advent Calendar:

11-19 Advent Calendar:

Annual chemist-tree and foraged wreath competition

There's no time to wait so Dash(er) or Prance(r) into your your prep room, grab your best labware and snap a picture of your amazing chemist-trees or why not take a wander around your garden or school grounds and forage some natural or waste materials to produce an awesome wreath? You could even turn this into a class activity!

Whatever you create drop a picture in the discussion (link below) for a chance to win: 
1st place - STEM Community mug, notepad and goody bag
2nd place - STEM Community mug or notepad and goody bag (and probably the option you didn't choose as well because, well it's Christmas)
3rd place - STEM Community mug or note pad (and probably a goody bag as well because I'm feeling super generous)

I'm travelling a bit over the break so ENTRY DEADLINE 5TH JAN 2024 so you have plenty of time to get creative, I'll notify winners on the thread below and drop you a private message to ask for address details so I can post your prizes in the new year.
