Engineers Can Save Lives

This activity provides a quick introduction to a lesson focusing on the link between water and health. It encourages students to think about the role of engineers in providing us with healthy water supplies and waste-water disposal systems.

This activity, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (...

Tap Supply

This activity challenges students to work in small teams to design a water supply system for a small town of 5,000 inhabitants. They have to work within a budget, including giving themselves a profit margin.

The activity offers strong opportunities for cross-curricular work with Enterprise.

The Perfect Glide

New computer software enables Britain's swimmers to improve a key aspect of their technique more quickly and effectively than previously possible - and so help them win more medals in major championships in future.

This video, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), explores the research...

Energy Efficiency 2

In this activity from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), students work in teams to investigate the measures that could be applied to reduce the carbon footprint of their own school. They then prepare a presentation summarising their recommendations.

Students are frequently hearing the...

Recycling

This scheme of work, produced by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), allows students to investigate environmental issues in the context of the design and operation of a new school. Students are introduced to the concept of recycling and then apply their mathematical understanding of formulae and...

Burning Water 1

This activity investigates the potential of hydrogen fuel cells as a means of energy generation and storage. Students make hydrogen gas by electrolysis, supported by practical instruction sheet. Combined with the Burning Fuels 2 resource, students can explore the challenges facing people in their search for...

Materials Testing 2

Students consider how materials need to be tested for their suitability for a specific job before engineers in construction projects can choose them. The tasks will ask the students to think about what properties need to be considered, how these might be scientifically tested, and how other considerations...

Communicating Over Distance

This activity, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), introduces students to the necessity of developing standards and protocols for communication.

It is intended that students will be able to:
• Build a simple electrical circuit
• Design a code for easy transmission of messages...

Tool Holder Testing

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...

What Is Remote Surgery?

This activity, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), provides an opportunity to assess students understanding of remote surgery.

It is intended that students will:
• Understand what remote surgery is
• Model how remote surgery works by using principles of electromagnetism to...
