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...

Virtual Sport

In this video from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), engineers explain the technology behind Wii controllers. Micro electro mechanical systems (MEMS) is the technology behind games console controllers and products like air bags. New applications for this technology are being found daily, and...

Musical Moods

This pack is about music technology and was developed to accompany the Musical Moods mass participation project for National Science & Engineering Week 2011 which aimed to find a new way of classifying online content based on mood. The activities are linked to the British Science Association’s CREST Awards...

Home energy

Reducing energy usage in the home saves money, increases energy security and reduces the need to burn unsustainable fossil fuels. The first step in doing this is monitoring how much energy is used each day.

In this unit, learners will use the BBC micro:bit to...

Head of engineering

This video presents James, head of engineering for a radio company. James discusses how after finishing school he didn't know what to study at university. After discovering a passion for sound engineering he went on to study it further, and how he was offered the role of junior engineer....

Head of device and sim technology

Eddie is the head of device and sim technology at Vodafone UK, his discusses his role in this video. Eddie and his team make sure customers’ handsets works with Vodafone's network. He aims to provide a good customer experience as well as working with the latest technology. He did well at school and studied maths,...

Back Pack Cover with Light Sensor

This project demonstrates how to use a light sensor cell holder and make a circuit using two PCB LEDs. The resource provides a step by step guide on how to make a bike backpack cover with LEDs inserted along one of the reflective stripes. It uses a cell holder which has a light sensor on it which means the LEDs...

Be My Valentine

This resource describes how to make two hearts which light up when placed next to each other. Each heart has a magnet switch and magnet hidden along the side edges and once they are lined up with each other, a circuit is created. A miniature cell holder is used along with a PCB LED that glows through the fabric....

Make It Move: Linear Actuator

In this design challenge from the National STEM Learning Centre and Network, students make a linear actuator. The lead screw linear actuator uses a motor driven screw thread to move a threaded slider along its length. Limit switches turn off the motor when the slider reaches either end of its movement track.
