Tideway: STEM activities (key stage three)

Tunnelworks is a series of teaching and learning resources linking mathematics and science to the Thames Tideway Tunnel project, a major new sewer that will help protect the River Thames from increasing pollution. Background to the project is given in the ...

Tideway: design and technology (key stage four)

Tunnelworks is a series of teaching and learning resources linking mathematics and science to the Thames Tideway Tunnel project, a major new sewer that will help protect the River Thames from increasing pollution. In this collection of design and technology focused activities the Augmented Reality (AR) app is used...

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 requires...

Saving the planet one journey at a time

This maths-based challenge explores sustainable travel, developing student understanding of the effects that some modes of transport have on the environment and ways of reducing it.

Students are asked to compare alternative methods of transport by calculating journey times and their carbon footprints.  The...

50+ Primary level STEM activities for any classroom

We know that in the current situation, STEM activities may be harder to run, especially with concerns about sharing equipment in groups.  We have selected over 50 activities that can be done in any classroom, with very little equipment.  These can...

Animate materials

Animate materials can sense, move, change shape, and adapt to their environment to fulfil particular goals. Across the scientific world, researchers are developing tools and ideas, many of them inspired by the mechanisms of nature, to create materials that have lifelike properties.

This set of resources,...

Burning Water 2

In this activity, students carry out research into the development and application of hydrogen fuel cells. Students are asked to produce a presentation or podcast which includes:

*An explanation of what hydrogen fuel...

James Webb Space Telescope: Keeping Things Cold

In this activity children learn about how the James Webb Space Telescope is designed to keep itself cold. They find out about the sunshield and how it works then explore how they can keep cold things cold, when...

James Webb Space Telescope: Investigating How Freezing Affects Materials

In this resource children investigate how the properties of different materials change when they are frozen. The two activities are based on a challenge scientists and engineers had when designing the James...

Water Supply and Developing Countries

This resource pack can be used to highlight issues such as global water scarcity, the challenges people face when sourcing water and maintaining a water supply in developing countries and the role of the engineers in solving these problems. Following a quick quiz, a presentation introduces the scale of local and...
