STEM Ambassador - Engineering - Primary
This set of resources are to help Engineering STEM Ambassadors introduce their work to pupils aged 5 to 11 years of age. The resources cover many types of engineering, but the common theme is that they contain activities that pupils could complete to show how engineers solve problems through the application of science and design.
The 'What is engineering?' resource contains a useful presentation 'Engineers don't all wear hard hats' to introduce what engineers do. This could be adapted by a STEM Ambassador to talk about the problem they are trying to solve. The presentation could be combined with a pupil hands on engineering activity to ensure high engagement and impact.
With these resources they provide a source of inspiration for some hands on activities that will work in a classroom.
