The Centre for Industry Education Collaboration (CIEC) has produced a large number of educational resources that help to illustrate the practical application of curriculum science and technology in real life contexts. With a strong emphasis on student investigations, the resources in this collection allow students to explore a range of science and technology concepts in meaningful and engaging contexts. Materials contain extensive teacher guidance, background information and student activity sheets.

The materials are also suitable for developing links with local science-based companies as they illustrate how classroom science and technology 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 students 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
