Handy Hydro: Ultimate STEM Challenge

This is Challenge Two of the 2017-18 BP Ultimate Stem Challenge. The challenge is to design a simple system to generate electricity from moving water. Students are to plan and carry out an investigation to measure how much electrical...

Reimagine a solution to a real-life problem

This year the BP Ultimate STEM Challenge is asking UK students aged 11 to 14 to put their science, technology, engineering and maths skills to the test and reimagine a solution to a real-life problem.

What Makes a Fast Boat?

This activity can be used to explore the relationship between shape and hydrodynamics (resistance).

Curriculum links include aerodynamics, resistance, forces, buoyancy and thrust. There are a number of useful links to supporting video clips and webpages.

The activity is part of the ...

Aerodynamics in Action

In this activity, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), students explore the basic principles of aerodynamics by looking at familiar products that have been designed with speed in mind and identifying features common to these products. The activity is part of the ...

Aerodynamics and Boomerangs

This activity, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), looks at how the boomerang works from design and scientific principles. Students explore how aerodynamic forces affect the flight of objects, relate the design features of the boomerang to its path and motion and they then learn to apply...

Parched Plants: Ultimate STEM Challenge

This is Challenge three of the 2017-18 . The competition is open to teams of two to four students aged 11 to 14 from across the UK.  Students can win some fantastic prizes, including an invitation to a celebratory event at the Science Museum, an Ultimate STEM experience day, £500 for their...

Brilliant Biogas: Ultimate STEM Challenge

This challenge is to design a system to generate and capture biomethane from food waste. Students are then to conduct an investigation to measure how to produce the most biomethane and find the best design for extracting biomethane from food waste.

This is Challenge One of the 2017-18 ...

Remote Operations

This Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) DIY Faraday Challenge asks students to work in teams to design and make a prototype device that can be operated remotely to pick up objects and accurately locate them on a given target. Devices such as these are increasingly used in medical engineering. In...

Auto arms

This is challenge three of the 2016-17 BP Ultimate STEM Challenge competition.  The competition is open to teams of two to four students aged 11 to 14 from across the UK.  Students can win some fantastic prizes, including an invitation to a...

Flood Defence

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...
