This is a collection of resources used for the National STEM Learning Centre course: Teaching engineering in the primary classroom
Links and Resources
Practical Action is a development charity which uses simple technology to fight poverty. The learning resources in this collection look at how issues such as climate change and the need for renewable energy can be tackled.
A range of materials, designed by BLOODHOUND SSC, to support the teaching of science, technology, engineering and mathematics at Key Stage Two. Topics include forces, motion, speed and resistance.
These materials are produced by EngineeringUK and are suitable for use with students following engineering, design technology or science courses. Investigations encourage students to look at topics in electronics, light, materials, sound and forces. There are also materials which illustrate the range of career opportunities in sectors, such as the entertainment industry, which employ engineers.
BP Educational Service (BPES) provides inspiring, curriculum-linked teaching resources for primary and secondary schools and colleges. The resources feature animated video clips, lesson plans, posters and worksheets.
Produced by Rolls-Royce, this toolkit of careers resources helps students to see the connection between STEM subjects studied in school, college or university and future job opportunities.
This collection is produced by Engineers Without Borders UK, an international development organisation that aims to remove barriers to development through engineering. It contains resources which challenge children to discuss big issues facing the modern world and the challenges this poses for engineers trying to find solutions to these global problems.
This collection provides three primary science resources which link to the Royal Institution Christmas Lecture ‘Sparks Will Fly’, given by Prof Danielle George in 2014. Produced by the University of Manchester's Science & Engineering Education Research and Innovation Hub.
A collection of primary resources from the Centre for Industry Education Collaboration, part of the Department of Chemistry at the University of York.
