Handy Hydro: Ultimate STEM Challenge

This is Challenge Two of the 2017-18 BP Ultimate Stem Challenge. The challenge is to design a simple system to generate electricity from moving water. Students are to plan and carry out an investigation to measure how much electrical...

Green Racer (14-16)

This resources, from Siemens, looks at how an electric car works, the components of the system and the function of each component. Students research the charge and discharge cycles of a battery-powered device and consider the advantages and disadvantages of battery power. They look at what is meant by the capacity...

Here Comes the Sun (14-16)

In this activity, from Siemens, students investigate how a petro-generator and photovoltaic cells work and identify their relative advantages and disadvantages. They then identify key factors about each system including initial cost, running cost, space requirements, waste products and power output, and use these...

Webinar 1 was held at 7.00pm GMT on 10th November 2015. The following links provide access to various outputs:

Analogue and Digital

This activity, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), introduces students to the differences between analogue and digital communication. An analogue signal can be rendered useless by small amounts of interference, whereas a digital signal remains coherent.

The activity is part of a full...

Without Tech Support

This activity, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), allows students to investigate the uses of communications technology in the modern world. There is an opportunity to audit the students’ skills such as visualisation or map-reading to form a scale drawing. These are skills that may not have...

Tool Holder Design

This activity, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), requires students to design a magnetic tool holder for a robot surgeon.

It is intended that students will:
• Appreciate the potential of surgical robots
• Understand how simple scientific principles can be used in...
