Tomorrow’s Engineers careers resource pack

Tomorrow’s Engineers careers resource pack for teachers, ambassadors and advisers to use with groups of students.

This resource pack is intended to inform and inspire young people and their influencers about the exciting opportunities presented by a career in engineering. The pack contains useful guidelines...

Sports Technologist

Chris Holmes is a sports technologist for sports equipment manufacturer Adidas. This Department for Education clip is useful in showing students how a career such as this relies on a background of STEM study. Chris describes how he specialises in the development of sports balls. His job is to investigate the best...

GENIE jumping genes

The aim of this activity is for students to use tiddlywinks to represent sections of jumping genes, which they then flick onto a poster which is representative of a section of the human genome. Where their "gene" lands either will or will not disrupt the gene and may then cause disease. An accompanying PowerPoint...

Spread of disease

This Core Maths resource enables students to explore various models of the spread of disease. 

The presentation has links to instructions for three activities:

  • a practical investigation using a die and counters to model the spread and decline of a disease and an activity sheet to...

Histograms

This is a series of interactive excel sheets that look at histograms.

The first sheet contains a histogram displaying a summary of time spent travelling to work. A new set of data can be generated at the click of a button. Alongside the graph tables calculating class width and frequency density can be...

Anthropometric Data

This resource from the Nuffield Foundation allows students to investigate relationships between anthropometric variables and write a report on their findings, which may include the use of scatter diagrams, lines of best fit, regression lines, and correlation coefficients. The spreadsheet contains anthropometric...

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC)

From the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), the 'Big questions, big experiment' wall chart describes the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. It looks at the "big questions" about our Universe that scientists are trying to answer, and how the amazing LHC will help them to do so. The 'Tunnel to the...

Seeing Temperatures

This activity allows students to investigate how images are produced from data streams by using first a spreadsheet and then an image-processing program. They then go on to see how the usefulness of such a monochromatic image may be enhanced by using lookup tables and calibration. The materials used focus on the...

Big Telescopes

The Big Telescopes poster links ground and space based telescopes with the parts of the electromagnetic spectrum that they are observing and their locations on Earth or in space.

The poster explains how larger telescopes allow scientists to learn more about the early universe and map our own galaxy with...
