The list covers six areas of science:
* Living things
This resources, from Siemens, looks at how an electric car works, the components of the system and the function of each component. Students research the charge and discharge cycles of a battery-powered device and consider the advantages and disadvantages of battery power. They look at what is meant by the capacity...
In this activity, from Siemens, students investigate how a petro-generator and photovoltaic cells work and identify their relative advantages and disadvantages. They then identify key factors about each system including initial cost, running cost, space requirements, waste products and power output, and use these...
Mini Map Makers is creating a Poster for STEM and STEAM for Cartography. How Cartography interacts with the elements!
This is working progress and a draft copy will be out soon!
Students work in teams to design and make a prototype device that can design and make a prototype of a simple device (to be sold in stores like B&Q) that will allow homeowners to remove water from their house during periods of flooding.
In this challenge the device will have to move 100ml of water from...

This activity from BLOODHOUND SSC illustrates the forces acting on BLOODHOUND SSC by calculating the thrust of a balloon powered car. The resource explores thrust as a concept, tying in with Newton’s Laws of Motion.
* Build a balloon car
* Conduct speed-time experiments using the...
This activity, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), requires students to design a magnetic tool holder for a robot surgeon.
It is intended that students will:
• Appreciate the potential of surgical robots
• Understand how simple scientific principles can be used in...
This activity, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), requires students to compete to make the strongest electromagnetic tool holder for a surgeon's robotic arm.
It is intended that students will be able to:
• Design the optimal electromagnet given constraints
• Consider the...
