People like me mothers and daughters session

This session aims to help students to make career decisions, as they can think about how they will fit in when choosing their own future directions
The session highlights which job roles can suit individual personalities – these roles are not restricted to STEM industries but where STEM knowledge is...

What were the Egyptian pyramids made from?

A team activity that results in team debating how the pyramids were actually built.

Teams work on either a case for Dimensional Stone, cut from a quarry face and transported to site while the other team build a case for an early precast work, hydraulic lime morter was cast in situ blocks and erected on the...

An interesting pair of simultaneous equations

In this teacher presentation and collection of student worksheets a pair of simultaneous equations is given, one of which is non-linear. A second pair of similar simultaneous equations is given; that has the same solutions. Students are challenged to explain why.

Each student worksheet contains different...

What’s f(500)?

A function is defined so that f(xy) = f(x) + f(y) for all positive integers x and y. Students are given the value of f(10) and (40) and are challenged to determine the value of f(500).

In each student worksheet contains different values for f(10) and f(40) but for...

Wedged triangles

In this resource students are given an image of a reciprocal curve, y=k/x. Two tangents to the curve are used, together with the coordinate axes, to form an 'arrow head' quadrilateral under the curve. The challenge is to determine the area of the quadrilateral.

The first step towards solving the problem...

Ratio of tans

In this resource students are given the coordinates for each vertex of a triangle, with two of the vertices being horizontal. The challenge is to determine the ratio of the tangents of two of the angles.

Each student worksheet has a different triangle, but the solutions all have something in common.


Triangle tan product and sum

In this resource the side lengths of a triangle are given. The challenge is to find the ratio of the product of each of the tangents, divided by the sum of each of the tangents.

Each student worksheet contains a different triangle, but the answers all have something in common.

The solution involves...

Careers in Space workshop

The Careers in Space workshop included inputs from: * Vicki Hodges on Astrium's STEM Ambassadors programme * Rosalind Azouzi on Space Tourism and the Next Generation * Lloyd Marshall on Apprenticeship opportunities with Astrium


I have been teaching Diseases and Infections, an interesting BTEC Level 3 module on microbes, diseases, the immune sustem and the impact infections/diseases have on society. I feel that I would like to make it a personalised journey for each student to pass on to another student by watching a 1-2 min mini...

Floating Garden STEM challenge

This challenge, from Practical Action, requires students to design and build a model structure that will enable farmers to grow crops even in an area that may become flooded. A floating garden, built on a base of aquatic weeds, is a cheap and sustainable way of allowing people to grow vegetables. The resource can...
