Rescue rockets

This is Challenge One of the 2016-17  BP Ultimate  STEM Challenge competition.  The competition is open to teams...

Forces (Key Stage Three)

These materials use the BLOODHOUND SSC land speed attempt as a context for teaching about forces, particularly forward thrust and frictional forces. The BLOODHOUND SuperSonic Car (SSC) land-speed attempt aims to reach a target speed of 1000 miles per hour.

A very large forward driving force is required to...

Rockets (Key Stage Three)

These materials use the land speed record attempt as a context for teaching about the irreversible changes and energy transfers that occur in BLOODHOUND SSC’s rocket engine.

The BLOODHOUND SuperSonic Car (SSC) World land-speed record attempt aims to reach a target speed of 1000 miles per hour. A massive...

Location, Location, Location (Key Stage Three)

These activities use the challenge of finding a suitable geographical location for the BLOODHOUND SSC world land-speed record attempt as a context for teaching about interpreting graphs and diagrams.

The attempt aims to reach a target speed of 1000 miles per hour. A large, flat, dry, hard and accessible area...

Introduction to Future Morph Resources

This set of resources provided by Future Morph has been produced to help teachers use the world of work as a context for their teaching. They aim to engage students in STEM subjects and show them how the knowledge of those subjects relate to everyday life. This resource comprises of:

Pod 5: Pupil Project

In this summative challenge from Nuffield Foundation groups of students use the knowledge, skills and understanding from earlier pods to explore a sustainability question of their choice. They need to research, analyze and present ideas in preparation for an exposition. Students assess each others ideas and plans...

Aircraft Structures

Produced by Innovate Educate and Aviation Heritage Lincolnshire, these materials allow students to investigate forces, motion and the use of resistant materials to make structures.

There are four activities which can be used in sequence or individually.

Helium balloons and lift

Fortune Tellers

In this Planet Science resource, instructions are given for making a fortune teller so students can make one with their own questions and answers. Attractive templates are provided where the science topic links to a possible career. They can be used to stimulate interest among 9 to 13 year olds and suggest possible...

Killer Water

This starter activity focuses on the link between water and health. It encourages students to think about the role of engineers in providing us with healthy water supplies and waste-water disposal systems by thinking about the different ways in which water can be hazardous to human health.

This...

Water Treatment Systems

In this practical activity, students investigate the salinity of three different water samples using a multimeter. Students first calibrate their salination probe and test the salinity of their solutions. Students can be asked to suggest how errors might have appeared in their results and what could be done to...
