The training session is suitable for STEM teachers in both primary and secondary settings. It will explain how the Royal Academy of Engineering can support you in the delivery of STEM subjects through the Teacher Coordinator programme and provide guidance on how to link with the Teacher Coordinator in your local area. We will explore a range of free resources which are available through the Royal Academy and in particular, go through a 'Code and Rescue' resource which focuses on how engineers support emergency services and search and rescue missions. The resource is mapped against the primary and secondary curriculum and contains activities with maths, science, D&T and computer science focuses. Following the session, you will receive a free resource box with a student and teacher guide plus the physical resources needed to carry out the activities with your students. There will be a follow up meeting two weeks later for feedback and sharing of best practice. The session is ideal for ideas relating to setting engaging hands on activities for students in a home learning context.


You will be able to:

  • work collaboratively to identify priorities in science teaching and learning and in science-specific professional development for your teams
  • share and develop strategies to tackle these issues, drawing on expertise as needed from outside the network
