This is Engineering: COVID-19 Teachers receive a resource guide and individual pupil packs rather than the traditional STEM box. Each pack contains the materials & equipment to engage pupils with stimulating and fun activities. Activities have been designed for teaching children how to think and act like an engineer.Packs undergo thorough cleaning before being sent directly to your school. This is in response to current school protocols in place due to COVID-19 and restrictions on social distancing. The latest resource Engineering in a Pandemic is focused on issues related to COVID 19. The individual resource packs have been designed to use in socially distanced classroom environments and can be sent to students working remotely. Challenges in this resource include building your own virus, what happens in an outbreak, making an antibody test, design and develop social distancing tools, test and trial different types of surgical masks and investigate the tech that has helped us manage the outbreak.
- You will gain a knowledge of what the new framework and the "deep dives" will look like in your own school setting
- Develop an awareness of effective strategies to support the new framework with colleagues in outreach work
- Opportunity to network with colleagues in a similar role across both primary and secondary phases
- We will also have the opportunity to discuss the challenges of being a science SLE trying to support collegues during the pandemic
