Nuffield STEM Games
This project allows students to consider the nature of games and sports in depth. What are the characteristics of games that make them enjoyable to play and watch? How can games be redesigned for different participants and different occasions? How can kit and equipment be designed to improve performance?
Students explore these questions through skills-based science, mathematics and design & technology activities leading to open-ended group project in which they work in groups to design a new game.
- The 16 hours of teaching time are made up of:
- An introductory lesson on teamwork
- Two 5-hour learning skills development pods
- One 5-hour student project pod.
This collection includes the power points that drive the learning in the pods. The full set of resources teachers' notes, students' sheets and CPD modules can be downloaded free at the Nuffield Foundation website.
