Remote Medicine

This video, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), explains how a telemedicine system is used by hospitals in the south-east of England to allow consultants to view injuries to patients and offer advice remotely. Software engineer, Scott Reynolds, explains how the system allows hospitals to...

Shifting Sewage

This film, from the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET), looks at the London sewerage system. This is a combined system in which dirty water from households and excess rainwater all ends up in the same place. When heavy rainfall fills the system it needs to be able to overflow into the river rather than...

Smart Sensor Communications

This video, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), features physiotherapist Jeroen Bergman who works with smart sensors at Charing Cross Hospital. He explains how a variety of sensors are used to analyse patients’ movements. Development work is looking at how costs can be reduced by integrating...

Questions

In this Teachers TV video, the late Ted Wragg shares his years of research into question types and reveals that in the classroom, surprisingly, only four per cent of questions asked in secondary schools are "higher order" questions, requiring more thought and an extended answer.

Invisible Witnesses

This booklet focuses on gendered representations of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), and how young people's views of careers in these subjects are developed. Classroom activities were developed for students drawing on media literacy skills to examine how their ideas have been influenced by...

Launch

In this activity, students look at the RNLI’s high-speed Shannon class lifeboats and launch vehicles which use hydraulics as a propulsion system. They explore the relationship between force, pressure and area and how forces are transmitted through liquids. Students also investigate how the output force of a jet...

Propulsion

In this activity, students consider energy transfers and calculate work done, speed, power and efficiency in order to compare two RNLI lifeboats in a rescue situation. They then go on to explore how much energy can be saved by restricting the speed during non-emergency situations.

Students work out how...

Safety Matters

In this activity, students are asked to analyse data to work out which form of personal transport is currently the least safe. They then consider what safety features are in use at the moment.

Students brainstorm and rank transport systems in order of safety. They then interpret the data in the Safety...

Car of the Future

Many different personal attributes can impact on road safety including a person's vision, ability to concentrate, reaction times and mobility. The car of the future should be designed to help people overcome these issues.

In this activity students design investigations to test reaction times and ability to...
