The Problem Solving Company offers Primary and Secondary Schools in the UK the chance to participate in a range of STEM Workshops and Activity Days in their own schools. Depending on the aims and objectives of your school we will help guide you in your choice.
Our STEM Workshops cover a growing number of different subject areas many with cross curricular links between different subjects.
We have been running Maths Workshops in schools since the business started 13 years ago. Due to the popularity of our workshops we have created different styles of activities and days to suit Primary and Secondary Schools. The workshops can help give maths the positive boost that is so often needs. Our range of hands on activities instantly engage even the most reluctant student.
When we visit Primary Schools as part of their Maths Day or Maths Week, we typically run Primary School Maths Workshops for all classes from reception through to Year 6, helping all classes feel that maths is important. These are approx 40 min sessions through the day. Our instructors can also run Workshops for longer periods of time. Workshops can run for up to half a day for KS1 children and full days for KS2 pupils.
Our Secondary School Maths Workshops vary from hour workshops to half and full day sessions. This can be arranged with a small group of students or whole year groups.
School Escape Rooms
Our School Escape Rooms have been a phenomenal success since their launch in 2016 and our range of workshops on offer has gone from strength to strength.
For Primary Schools we have Maths and Science with a Coding Escape coming in 2020. Both the Maths and Science Escapes have been so popular we have numerous versions. This allows us to visit schools in back to back years without any repetition.
The Classroom Escapes have been tailored for KS2 and are a great immersive activity that have been designed to support the National Curriculum. They have been designed for full classes to take part simultaneously.
The Secondary School Escape Rooms on offer are Maths and a Science Escape for Years 7 – 9. We also have three more specialised Escapes for Biology, Chemistry and Physics for GCSE students.
As well as STEM subjects we also run our Escape sessions with a focus on Team Building and History.

Engineering and Construction Activity Days
Our Engineering and Construction Activity Days typically last between 60 mins and full day sessions. They are suitable for KS3 upwards.
Teams are confronted with a range of tasks where they will firstly need to design, often to budgets and then build an array of projects.
With a large range of challenges to choose from these activity sessions allow students to be confronted with how real life projects work. From the lightbulb moment through to the building the end project these sessions will test your student’s thinking.
