Athlete or Machine?
The Royal Academy of Engineering has developed a teaching and learning resource for Key Stage Three that combines design, technology, mathematics and science activities. The resource allows students to investigate the question: Athlete or machine? Which is more important in the bob skeleton event? To answer the question, students must identify factors that influence the performance of the bob skeleton and investigate each one through practical, mathematical and scientific activities. By encouraging STEM learning based on student-led investigation, problem solving and higher-order thinking, students will be able to provide their own enquiry-led, sophisticated and justified answer to a difficult real world question.
