Balloon Powered Car

An interactive activity from BLOODHOUND SCC in which students build their own balloon-powered car and then explore ways to make it go faster and further. Building a balloon-powered rocket car provides opportunities for investigation, team work and developing design skills. As well as focusing on science and...

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 ...

Stuck in the Mud

Aimed at Key Stage Two, this resource looks at the problem of launching RNLI lifeboats from different types of terrain in all kinds of weather. Linked to work on forces, shape and space and design and technology, it introduces the concept that both force and area affect the pressure applied on a surface. Working...

Green Racer (14-16)

This resources, from Siemens, looks at how an electric car works, the components of the system and the function of each component.
