In this activity, students consider energy transfers and calculate work done, speed, power and efficiency in order to compare two RNLI lifeboats in a rescue situation. They then go on to explore how much energy can be saved by restricting the speed during non-emergency situations.

Students work out how...

Writing a Flowchart

This engineering activity, suitable for children in computing lessons, looks at the basics of flowchart construction.

Simple examples, such as the decisions made by a dog chasing a stick, are used to make flowchart representation of algorithms accessible to younger children.

A simple design activity...
