Centre for Industry Education Collaboration (CIEC): Primary School Resources

The Centre for Industry Education Collaboration (CIEC) has a long history of producing science education resources that look at how science is applied in real-life contexts. The resources in this collection allow children to gain investigative skills, understand scientific concepts and also enjoy group work. The materials contain extensive teacher guidance, background information and chidren's activity sheets. The materials are also suitable for developing links with local science-based companies as they illustrate how classroom science can be applied in a range of industrial contexts. The activities cover a wide range of curriculum science and technology. They help to: * enhance teaching of science and technology * engage children by placing investigations in meaningful contexts * help teachers and local industry to gain a better understanding of each others' work * show the role played by science-based industry in society
