Jake Honour: Apprentice Maintenance Engineer

In this Careers4u.tv video, Jake Honour talks about his apprenticeship in electrical and mechanical engineering. He works for a company that produces packaging and his daily tasks include maintenance, servicing and repair of machinery.

Jake's main priority is to assist a fully qualified engineer in the...

STEM Fairs: Introduction

These materials are provided by the British Science Association and supported by Intel. They aim to give an overview of the types of activities that happen at STEM fairs. The guide is useful in preparing students when visiting a fair. It also covers some of the key...

STEM Fairs: Interviews

Provided by the British Science Association, with support from Intel Education, these resources provide an insight into a range of activities involved in organising and taking part in STEM fairs. They include contributions from a teacher taking part in STEM competitions...

STEM Fairs: Guidance and Tools

These guidance resources are provided by the British Science Association, with support from Intel Education. They give guidance that includes both attending a STEM fair and running an event. There are three sections:

Future Morph careers quest

Future Morph Careers Quest was developed for students attending one of the the Big Bang science fairs. In the activity, students question exhibitors about aspects of their work and how they had chosen their particular career.

Whilst developed for a an exhibition context, the resources can suggest questions...

Picture Perfect Processing

A Mathematics Matters case study looking at how mathematical software supports new developments in imaging technology. Mathematical image processing techniques make it possible for us to capture, transmit and store photographs and video. They also let us restore noisy or damaged images and extract useful...

Preserving Britain's Coastlines

This Mathematics Matters case study looks at the serious problem of coastal erosion. Much of the UK’s coastline is undergoing erosion, placing homes, businesses and other important coastal sites at risk. Mathematical modelling can enable us to understand both the short and long term processes that lead to erosion,...

Scans on the Brain

This Mathematics Matters case study, produced by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, looks at how mathematical research contributes to the development of new medical imaging technology. Brain scans play a vital role in the treatment of many serious medical conditions, but decoding the signals inside...

Smarter Phones for All

This Mathematics Matters case study, produced by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, looks at how industry relies on cutting-edge mathematics to develop better quality communications. The amount of information we can transmit though the air is limited by the laws of physics, but the mathematics of...

Statistically-Secure Identities

This Mathematics Matters case study, from the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, looks at how biometric identification systems rely on mathematical methods to convert images into data that can be digitally stored. It is essential that the biometric systems we depend on for national security can reliably...
