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...

Gas Compression and Expansion

This engineering resource, produced by Mathematics in Education and Industry (MEI) for the Royal Academy of Engineering, asks the question: how can you calculate the energy used, or made available, when the volume of a gas is changed? A bicycle pump, a refrigerator and the internal combustion engine change the...

Carbon Capture and Storage, Floods, CryoSat-2

This podcast from the Planet Earth Online collection and the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) looks at how carbon capture and storage works, why it's here to stay, the effect of floodplains on water pollution, and how the thickness of polar ice can be measured from space.

The venue for this Planet...

Air Tracking of a Ground Object

This engineering resource, produced by Mathematics in Education and Industry (MEI) for the Royal Academy of Engineering, asks the question: how can a camera, mounted on a helicopter, be used to track the location of a ground-based object?

A number of discussion ideas are considered before using 2D and 3D...

Power Demand

This engineering resource, produced by Mathematic in Education and Industry (MEI) for the Royal Academy of Engineering, asks the question: how can you predict future power requirements?

Students are required to complete a table by substituting values into a formula and plot a graph. The interactive file can...

Resistor Production

This engineering resource, produced by Mathematics in Education and Industry (MEI) for the Royal Academy of Engineering, asks the question: how can production outcome data from a manufacturing process be analysed to optimise the process?

Students consider the outputs of resistors to see the outcomes form a...

Simple Gears and Transmission

This engineering resource, produced by Mathematics in Education and Industry (MEI) for the Royal Academy of Engineering, asks the question: how are transmissions designed so that they provide the force, speed and direction required, and how efficient is the design?

Students consider the physical...
