TEP Resources at the National STEM Centre
Welcome to the TEP online community group. Many of the publications produced by TEP are now available to download from the National STEM Centre's eLibrary. The 14-16 and Post 16 publications include some excellent project ideas for electronics, structures, mechanisms, manufacturing and control technology. Here is an extract from the 14 to 16 Manfacturing book illustrating the use of a simple glue gun to undertake injection moulding as a desktop manufacturing process.
Other resources include a series of short video clips demonstrating smart and unusual materials. See, for example, how the two-way memory spring opens and closes automatically when heated and cooled.
