STEM Club Support: the right switch

This activity is aimed at using a new material QTC (Quantum Tunnelling Composite). The aim of the activity is to encourage students to think creatively about new uses for this material. It can be used to make fabric switches for example and it has great potential for helping save on the space and weight that new...

Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Produced for Future Morph, this resource includes a video in which a student talks about his course in electrical and electronic engineering. He describes how one project was to make and test a circuit that included a light-sensitive resistor. A second activity describes a class experiment...

Physics in Sport: Fencing

This resource uses the context of fencing to make a simple electric circuit. Students make an epee sword out of a smarties tube and incorporate a buzzer that should sound when the button on the end of the smarties tube is pressed. Students are encouraged investigate how they could change the volume of the buzzer or...
