Key stage four Siemens resources

The story of the Siemens brothers, and their involvement in the invention and development of innovative and ground breaking technology, provides the stimulus for this set of resources designed for KS4 learners. The resources include:

  • interactive games and supporting teaching activities and worksheets
  • three of the 'Six for Six' modules series of complimentary resources including different activities using real-world examples of technology, engineering and manufacturing.

The 'Six for Six' modules feature videos, films and challenging competitive tasks most suitable for longer term projects or a STEM Club setting. Comprehensive teacher notes with links to additional learning opportunities and events associated with STEM learning frameworks and calendar are included alongside detailed curated lesson plans and worksheets.

One of the modules focuses upon how the energy and power we generate shape the way we live now and how it can alter the way we live in the future. The other two modules focus on existing and future transportation and manufacturing systems.

Topics covered:

Module 4: Power to the people – considers how the quality of our lives depends upon a reliable and cheap supply of energy and how this can be achieved without damaging the environment.

Module 5: Getting around – examines transport systems and how essential they are to modern life but the careful planning and operation required for them to be fit for purpose. 

Module 6: Building the things we need - which gets students thinking about efficient ways of doing things  whether that be in the home or in a factory manufacturing cars.

A Peep Inside (14-16)

In these activities, from Siemens, students identify the importance of medical imaging in diagnosis and consider the advantages offered by MRI scans. They then apply their knowledge of wave and particle physics to explain the operation of an MRI scanner.

The key idea with these activities is to get students thinking about efficient ways of doing things. This starts off with simple examples such as getting ready to come out of the house in the morning and then extends to more complex contexts such as...

The key ideas contained in this 'Six for Six' resource from Siemens involves getting pupils thinking about how we get the power we need to support the wide variety of functions we have come to rely...

The key idea with these activities from Siemens is to get students thinking about the challenges associated with organising transport. They will have first-hand experience of issues relating to transport, whether in terms of convenience, cost or...
