Wireless 1

This activity, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), introduces students to Wi-Fi, its properties and capabilities, using a real-life scenario as the context.

Body centric communications have abundant applications in personal healthcare, smart homes, personal entertainment, identification...

Wireless 2

This activity, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), is one of a series of activities which explores body centric communications. Students study data and annotate a diagram to show what electromagnetic radiation can penetrate the atmosphere. The activity also looks at the visible/infrared window...

Wifi - How It Works

In this activity, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), students read about a Wi-Fi system (often called WLAN — wireless local area network) and produce a diagram to show how the ‘wireless’ part is, by necessity, short-range. Mostly, the signal is carried to the internet by cables.

Body Centric Antenna

In this activity, from the Institution of Engineering and technology (IET), students investigate a use of electronic systems to improve health care.

They study a case where a Body Centric Antenna (BCA) increases the speed at which data can be made available to health professionals and produce a short...

Antennas Explained

This activity, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), explores how the antenna part of body centric antennas (BCAs) work and encourages students to consider ethical issues surrounding the use of advanced technology to control prosthetics.

This resource is supported by the videos ...

Cyborg Ethics

In this activity, from the Institution of Engineering and technology (IET), students are introduced to how the present body centric antenna, plus prosthetic technology, could be compared to science fiction ‘cyborgs’. Students are also asked to discuss ethical issues around this idea.

Body centric...

Engineering Processes

This activity, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), focuses on understanding the concept of modular design and the casting process. The resource is designed to allow students to:

• describe the characteristics of a cast product
• explain why a designer may use a repeating module in...

Fit For Purpose

This activity, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), explores the qualities and/or properties which make a material fit for purpose. The resource is designed to allow students to:

• understand that materials can be designed and made to specific characteristics and purposes
• be able...

Investigating Batch Production 1

This activity, from the Institution of Engineering and technology (IET), focuses on the design of a tessellated product and preparation for manufacture. The resource is designed to allow students to:
• be able to analyse a design brief
• be able to generate ideas for a tessellated product that is suitable...

Investigating Batch Production 2

This activity, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), focuses on understanding the steps and the decision-making process in the design and build of products.

The resource is designed to allow students to:
• carry out the batch manufacture of a cast product
• be able describe the...
