Sensing (Part Two)

From the Technology Enhancement Programme (TEP), these circuits allow students to build a range of devices. Each circuit has a full circuit diagram, component list and explanation of how the circuit works. In this section, the circuits cover a range of devices that use...

Shadow Air Muscle 14 to 16

This publication, from the Technology Enhancement Programme (TEP), is about the Shadow Air Muscle. This is a new kind of device for producing movement and is commercially available from the Shadow Robot Company.

This book covers some activities that can be carried out using the 'muscle', to design devices...

Smart Grease

This short film from the Technology Enhancement Programme (TEP) is one of a series of clips which were produced to demonstrate the properties and use of a range of smart materials.

Smart grease is a particularly sticky and viscous gel with almost magical shear characteristics. It can be used in prototype...

Smart Materials

This series of short films from the Technology Enhancement Programme (TEP) was produced to demonstrate the properties, and use, of a range of smart materials. Smart materials are materials that have one or more properties that can be significantly changed in a controlled fashion by external stimuli, such as stress...

Smart Wire

This short film from the Technology Enhancement Programme (TEP) is one of a series of clips which were produced to demonstrate the properties and use of a range of smart materials.

'Smart wire' is a shape memory alloy (SMA) which changes its length with a useful pulling force when a small current is...

An introduction for pupils and students to 'smart' materials with special reference to shape memory alloy (SMA) in wire form. The book examines the fascinating characteristics of SMA wire and gives examples of applications. It shows, for example, how a linear actuator can be made from wire and activated just by...

Solar Heating and Power

Produced by the Technology Enhancement Programme (TEP), these images are useful for adding to documents and presentations, or for use with an interactive whiteboard. Mainly simple line drawings, they can be cut and pasted into documents and image processing applications. The images in this resource are related to...

Solar Thread

This short film from the Technology Enhancement Programme (TEP) is one of a series of clips which were produced to demonstrate the properties and use of a range of smart materials. These active threads change from one colour to another when exposed to sunlight, and then revert to their original colour when out...

Sound

From the Technology Enhancement Programme (TEP), these circuits allow students to build a range of devices. Each circuit has a full circuit diagram, component list and explanation of how the circuit works. In this section, the circuits cover a range of sound and audio...

Strength of Materials and Objects

Produced by the Technology Enhancement Programme (TEP), these images are useful for adding to documents and presentations, or for use with an interactive whiteboard. Mainly simple line drawings, they can be cut and pasted into documents and image processing applications. The images in this resource are related to...
