Seeing The Unseen - Radar. Practical, active group activity to discover how basic maths and physics help engineers to "see the unseen"
Group activity involving volunteers moving around a teaching space and using time, distance and speed measurements to locate a student taking on the role of an aircraft.
Supports the use of Speed = Distance / Time and also the concept of radio waves travelling through space, giving practical meaning to...

In this activity students explore why a water clock was the world's first programmable system. Programmable systems are by no means a modern invention. Many regard the first to be Ktesibios's water clock, which was invented approximately 2250 years ago.
The aim of this activity is that students apply what...
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...
