Nuffield STEM Futures

This project allows students to think positively and creatively about different visions of the future. The activities are designed to celebrate human ingenuity rather than apportion blame or induce guilt. Specifically students are challenged to rethink a sustainable future based on the principles of closed loop systems in nature.

These are:

  • Waste as food
  • Powered by sunshine

Resilience through diversity Students explore problems through skills-based science, mathematics and design & technology activities leading to open-ended group project work.

The 28 hours of teaching time are made up of:

  • 3-hour introductory pod
  • Three 5-hour learning skills development pods
  • Two 5-hour student project pods.

This collection includes the power points that drive the learning in the pods. The full set of resources including video clips, animations, teachers' notes, students' sheets and CPD modules can be downloaded free at the Nuffield Foundation website.
