Futurecade

Futurecade is an innovative interactive suite of games from the Science Museum that allows students to explore how science and technology impacts on their everyday lives. Futurecade’s four games are inspired by current and future technology in the fields of robotics, satellites and space junk, geo-engineering and...

Ohm's Law

This simulation demonstrates how Ohm's law relates to a simple circuit. The voltage and resistance can be adjusted to see how this affects the current. The sizes of the symbols in the equation change to match the circuit diagram.

Pod 1: Introduction

In this Nuffield Foundation resource, students explore the how humans have sought and used materials and energy throughout history. They learn that the current manufacturing system extracts raw materials, makes something useful and then disposes of it afterwards as waste. This take-make-dump model is not...

Gas Compression and Expansion

This engineering resource, produced by Mathematics in Education and Industry (MEI) for the Royal Academy of Engineering, asks the question: how can you calculate the energy used, or made available, when the volume of a gas is changed? A bicycle pump, a refrigerator and the internal combustion engine change the...

Electricity

Electricity is an analogy that provides a way of helping students develop a real understanding of simple electric circuits. This interactive resource is provided by the Association for Science Education (ASE).

Aspects of simple electric circuits (such as cells, bulbs, charge, energy) are represented as parts...

Air Tracking of a Ground Object

This engineering resource, produced by Mathematics in Education and Industry (MEI) for the Royal Academy of Engineering, asks the question: how can a camera, mounted on a helicopter, be used to track the location of a ground-based object?

A number of discussion ideas are considered before using 2D and 3D...

Power Demand

This engineering resource, produced by Mathematic in Education and Industry (MEI) for the Royal Academy of Engineering, asks the question: how can you predict future power requirements?

Students are required to complete a table by substituting values into a formula and plot a graph. The interactive file can...

Resistor Production

This engineering resource, produced by Mathematics in Education and Industry (MEI) for the Royal Academy of Engineering, asks the question: how can production outcome data from a manufacturing process be analysed to optimise the process?

Students consider the outputs of resistors to see the outcomes form a...

Simple Gears and Transmission

This engineering resource, produced by Mathematics in Education and Industry (MEI) for the Royal Academy of Engineering, asks the question: how are transmissions designed so that they provide the force, speed and direction required, and how efficient is the design?

Students consider the physical...

Sportscience and Engineering in Education

This interactive resource explores the roles played by engineering, science and technology in today’s sports. The four modules are: Forces and motion (for students aged 9 to 11 and above); Sports shoe design (for students aged 11 to 14); How high will it fly? (for students aged 11-14); and Making waves (for...
