Pushing it in STEM lessons

We've had a few issues of late with engaging some of our KS4 pupils in STEM lessons. I was looking at reasons why and came up with the following-

  1. The "classic" STEM projects have become boring
  2. STEM has to be relevant or ridiculously fun to grab and engage EBD pupils
So how am I going to address the issues and get the disengaged reversed? Well I have a few ideas, here they are-

  1. Don't start a practical project the group cannot complete
  2. Use a project that pupils can relate to
  3. Only give out the required equipment/materials
I'll let you know how I get on!
