Key Stage



Years 3-6


Explore a range of literacy and STEM activities using Jarrett Lerner’s EngiNerds novel as a launchpad.

From designing their own robot to writing and drawing comics, pupils will learn about the foundations of engineering, and how creativity can permeate both storytelling and science.

Created by the author, the accompanying worksheets will help guide your class through the activities, and enhance their cross-curricular learning.

They provide simple engineering projects for KS2 pupils. Draw your own robot, come up with alternative uses for everyday objects, and invent a gadget!

Use the worksheets on their own, or in conjunction with Jarrett’s cross-curricular activities based on his Enginerds novel.

What is EngiNerds?

EngiNerds, the first novel in Lerner’s EngiNerds trilogy, has two major goals:

  1. To prove to or confirm for kids that reading can be a thoroughly enjoyable activity
  2. To show kids how books can serve as sources of ideas and inspiration for their own creative journey

Author-illustrator Jarrett Lerner is the creator of the EngiNerds series of middle-grade novels, Geeger the Robot chapter books, Give This Book a Title and Give This Book a Cover activity books, Hunger Heroes graphic novels, and more. Jarrett can be found at and on Twitter and Instagram. Find out more about STEM education.
