Explorers

In this activity, students are required to find a safe route through a notoriously perilous region of space called the Twilight Nebula.

They will be faced with a number of different threats but can maximise their chances of survival using a series of threat assessment readouts. Students will compare fraction...

Diagonal Differences

This Subtangent investigation looks at what happens if the numbers in opposite corners of a three by three square, placed on an eight by eight grid, are multiplied then their difference found. Using algebra, students may discover a general rule which applies to any three by three square placed on the grid. Students...

Design the Mascot

In this activity, students take the role of a graphic designer. Their task is to create a mascot for a new primary school. Students use a web-based digital drawing tool package to draw their design. Students are encouraged to work both individually and in small groups to discuss possible designs as they make...

Crash Test

In this activity, students use computer software to explore the impact of car crashes under varying conditions and the effects on a simulated dummy. Students can select a car, a crash point and a speed, then watch an animation of a crash and see the results as physical impact on the dummy and as numerical data....

Corner to Corner

In this Nuffield activity students investigate how different numbers of squares can be joined corner to corner and the effect their arrangement has on the area of the rectangle that encloses the squares.

The key processes developed in this activity are:

*Representing - determining which aspects to...

Colouring Maps

This activity from Subtangent is based on the four colour theory, which is used by mapmakers. There is an interactive task which challenges students to colour a map using no more than four colours and ensuring that no two regions which share a border have the same colour. Further resources include examples of...

AstroZoo

This activity requires students to use computer software to try to save a space borne tourist attraction, AstroZoo, which has various exotic space creatures, but has fallen on hard times. The zoo was once a great success, but bad management has seen oxygen reserves exhausted, creature enclosures overpopulated,...

North Sea Rocks

The resource available consists of the following items:

RESINATED CORE SLABS (15m)

This is material that has been cut...

Circuit Construction Kit

This simulation allows students to build circuits with capacitors, inductors, resistors and AC or DC voltage sources, and investigate current and voltage.

Sample Learning Objectives include: *Build circuits from circuit diagrams. *Use an ammeter and voltmeter to take readings in circuits. *Discuss basic...

Visited Hazelwick School in Crawley- On their open day on careers -on 7 February 2018

Represented Stem  on the above 

Carried out/Talk /Discussions on Engineering as a career for for groups of students.

In all I talked  7 groups of students.. Gave a brief history of my career as an engineer and answered the students' queries and concerns

It was a a whole day affair.
