Assessing Design Innovation: Report

This paper, produced by the Technology Education Research Unit (TERU) at Goldsmiths College, University of London, reports the findings of an assessment of design and technology teaching in primary and secondary schools. A focus of the report was on assessment of design and technology subjects at all stages and...

Assessing Design Innovation: Tasks

This set of tasks presents students with challenges encouraging them to be creative and imaginative in responding to a design brief. Each project can be used as an assessment activity and students are given six to seven hours to complete the task. Each brief clearly explains the scenario, what is required and what...

Spectroscopy in a Suitcase

This outreach programme aimed to build upon good practice from the Royal Society of Chemistry's (RSC) project Chemistry for our Future, and to develop new activities which could then be used with the RSC’s Spectroscopy in a Suitcase (SIAS) equipment. It explored appropriate contexts which may appeal to students...

Build Your Own Robot Arm

This resource sets the challenge of designing a robot arm which can pick up a cup from a defined distance. Students then evaluate their design and suggest modifications.

They are also asked to consider which scientific and algebraic principles could be applied to the activity as well as considering their...

Electronics

This Nuffield Working with Science unit aimed to enable students to design circuits to meet specific needs. The plan was also to help students to realise the range of electronics problems which they can solve by taking a systems approach.

Guidance for teachers and technicians appears in...
