1G, 2G, 3G, 4G

This activity, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), introduces students to the science behind communication technology, giving them an understanding of some of the vocabulary and concepts used. The handout includes a series of illustrations and...

3D shapes from 2D drawings

Nets are used to make almost all forms of card packaging, ranging from simple cereal boxes to display boxes with clear polymer ‘windows’, to display stands. In this activity children consider how 3D packaging may be made from a 2D net, then make card models of a pyramid and a cube from nets. They may combine...

60 seconds on sports technology

In this activity, learners will work in groups to share their knowledge of the use of technology in sport. They will each give a 60 second presentation about the topic to their group.

This resource could be used as a starter activity or as part of an exercise for learners to develop their knowledge of how...

Acoustic Engineering 1

This starter activity has been inspired by the Sound Design...

Acoustic Engineering 2

This activity asks students to use the CAFEQUE (Cost, Aesthetics, Function, Ergonomics, Quality, User, Environment) principles to analyse Bang & Olufsen earphones.

A link is given to a case study of the marketing...

Acoustics engineer

This video shows a brief interview with Daryl who describes how his love of problem solving and learning how things work led to him becoming an engineer.

Aerodynamics and Boomerangs

This activity, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), looks at how the boomerang works from design and scientific principles. Students explore how aerodynamic forces affect the flight of objects, relate the design features of the boomerang to its path...

Aerodynamics in Action

In this activity, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), students explore the basic principles of aerodynamics by looking at familiar products that have been designed with speed in mind and identifying features common to these products....

Aerodynamics Timeline

This activity, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), challenges students to put images of cars and aeroplanes in chronological order, to explain how they made their decision and describe how the products relate directly to developments in science and...

Aerospace engineer challenge

This challenge provides a STEM activity day in which teams of children work together to design an aeroplane and then construct a transporter to move it to the next stage of...
