As a business at the cutting edge of developments in energy, industry, healthcare and infrastructure and cities, Siemens uses contexts from its work to provide materials that present real challenges to students and develop the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in, and meet the challenges of, a technology-led future. These schemes of work are based on some of the ground-breaking projects and technologies of the four business sectors that Siemens is engaged in. Each scheme of work is supported by corresponding stimulus video, lesson plan and student support sheets to supplement classroom delivery. The Crystal is an exhibition situated in east London which showcases global trends and challenges, and existing technological solutions to build environmentally sustainable, livable and prosperous cities. Across ten zones, the exhibition encourages students to change the way we all think about the development of cities, now and for future generations.
