Skills Needs for Biomedical Research: Creating the Pools of Talent to Win the Innovation Race

This report, published by the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI) in 2008, is based on a survey of ABPI and UK BioIndustry Association (BIA) member companies to review the position three years on from a previous report called Sustaining the Skills Pipeline in the Pharmaceutical and...

The Perfect Glide

New computer software enables Britain's swimmers to improve a key aspect of their technique more quickly and effectively than previously possible - and so help them win more medals in major championships in future.

This video, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), explores the research...

Which Material? 1

In this activity, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), students carry out some data analysis to find the best material from which to make a prosthetic foot. They plot graphs of stress against strain and calculate the modulus of elasticity for a number of candidate materials. The activity offers...

Which Material? 2

In this practical activity, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology, students investigate the properties of smart springs and see how they might be used as muscles in a robotic arm. This activity can be used as an extension to the related activity ‘...

The Anatomy of Prosthetics

This activity, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), is a quick, engaging introduction to a lesson looking at the properties of modern materials and how these are used to imitate human body parts. Students think about human body parts which can already be replaced with prostheses, explain what...

Engineers Can Read Your Mind

This resource, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), allows students to investigate the wide range of sophisticated imaging technology available in modern hospitals, and to explore the latest ideas in search-and-rescue robotics.

The activity encourages students to think about new...

Making Waves

This activity, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), looks at the properties and applications of waves in general, and the electromagnetic spectrum in particular. Students are asked to work out the type of electromagnetic radiation used in different imaging techniques.

The use of...

Mind Over Matter

This resource, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), allows students to investigate the wide range of sophisticated imaging technology available in modern hospitals, and to explore the latest ideas in search-and-rescue robotics.

The activity makes use of the short film 'Mind Mapping' and...

Which Imaging Technique?

This resource, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), allows students to investigate the wide range of sophisticated imaging technology available in modern hospitals, and to explore the latest ideas in search-and-rescue robotics.

Students work in small teams to select a method of medical...

Which Imaging Technique? - Practical

In this practical activity, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), students investigate aspects of signal processing. Working in teams, students convert an analogue brain signal into a digital format and transmit it across the classroom to another team using flashes from the LED on the digital...
