Textiles themed design challenges

This resource provides mini challenges based on the designing process. With textiles as the core theme, students are set mini challenges that ask them to create design briefs, understand client needs, generate ideas, communicate their ideas and evaluate their ideas.

Graphics Products

A Nuffield design hexagon task focusing on a range of graphics products. The resource aims to extend understanding of how to evaluate a design by thinking how it affects people and whether it performs as expected. This resource contains a number of activities for each side of the design hexagon (student pages and...

Emotional robot

A short starter activity for students of all ages. It would make a good introduction to lessons on robotics or artificial intelligence and could spark a discussion on how neural networks might be used to create human-like behaviour. Equally, when discussing HCI design, it might move the debate beyond keyboard and...

The Oxidation of Hydrogen

In this classic experiment, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, students vary the proportion of hydrogen and oxygen and then set light to the mixture. By comparing the loudness of the pop, students can conclude which reaction was most powerful. The resource is set out as teachers' notes followed by the students'...

Managing STEM Enhancement and Enrichment

From the National Strategies, these documents give advice and guidance on delivering a successful science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) curriculum enrichment and enhancement programme.

Three practicals produced by the Institute of Physics (IOP) that help students to understand some of the physics used in medical analysis. In addition to the guidance included for specific activities, please refer to the generic health and safety information before commencing any practical activity. This resource...

F1 R-type

This resource from Boxford describes the manufacturing of an R-type car for the F1 in Schools competition. It includes exemplar CAD files for the balsa block from which the car is made and a variety of jigs. The material constraints for the design are described. Detailed step-by-step instructions, with supporting...

F1 D-type

This resource from Boxford describes the manufacturing of a D-type (Bloodhound challenge) car for the F1 in Schools competition. It includes exemplar CAD files for the balsa block from which the car is made and a variety of jigs. Practical considerations for manufacturing, such as the need to attach the balsa to...

Malaria Challenge: Managing Malaria

Produced by the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, these materials help students to understand how malaria is tackled in an area where it is endemic. In this activity students are given a scenario where they are allocated the role of malaria programme managers for a community in a malaria area.

Making Music with the NXT

This sample, taken from a teacher guide, makes use of Lego NXT programmable kits to create musical instruments. Controllable devices are built that can ‘play’ percussion instruments such as a xylophone and a drum; other ideas include making a trumpet using NXT touch sensors for buttons, or controlling tone using...
