STEM Club Support: the Engineering Message

This resource aims at raising students' awareness of what engineers do and how the profession contributes to the world. The key activity for students is to define and discuss engineering as a career. There are also two case studies to use.

STEM Club Support: Routes into Engineering

This information sheet is aimed at teachers to use with their students to introduce them to the range of engineering careers and training routes. The sheet provides information on salaries, profiles two engineering students and provides suggested websites for further information.

STEM Club support: diversity

This activity challenges stereotypes by asking students to draw and describe an engineer and then requiring them to explain their drawings together with discussing stereotypes. There are career profiles and further activities for teachers to pursue with their students.

STEM Club Activity: Moving House

This activity sheet for students will enable them to demonstrate the idea of reinforced materials and conclude which is the best to choose for a specific task, in this case constructing buildings resistant to earthquakes and high winds. The work of a structural engineer is also profiled.

Smart skin

Receptors under our skin send signals to our brains about the world around us. Engineers are borrowing this idea from the human body to create a ‘smart skin’ for aircraft. In this activity students learn about motes, the tiny sensors at the heart of this innovation, and how science and mathematics are central to...

How to make your own hovercraft

This resource shows how you can successfully lift a person off the ground using two cordless leaf blowers, problem-solving skills and some STEM knowledge: the same knowledge and skills that are used to design hovercraft.

Curriculum links include:

forces - Balanced and unbalanced...

Euler's characteristic

This resource explores how 'Euler's characteristic' has had an impact on many aspects of real-life, from computing to the shape of a football. The has been created by the Royal Academy of Engineering in partnership with Tomorrow's Engineers as a STEM club or STEM Ambassador activity, but can also be adapted by...

Engineering enables

The development of running blades has greatly enhanced the running ability of amputees and people born without legs.  In this actvitiy students learn more about how the inventor of running blades applied the scientific concept of potential elastic energy and biomimicry to design a high performance prosthetic leg....

Senior composites engineer

This video introduces Paul, a senior composites engineer for Lola Cars International. Paul explains his role in designing the structures that are made of carbon fibre for race cars such as the one featured in the video. He discusses the love of engineering he had when he was younger and how his maths, physics...

Investigating Tesla

In this resource students investigate the company Tesla, its structure and Hyperloop One. To begin they are asked to consider how we currently produce electricity in the UK, and how this may have to change. They consider the type of work that Tesla and Hyperloop One undertake and how this is changing rapidly in...
