Wind turbines - a GCSE engineering support project, including industrial case studies and class pack resources.

Smart materials - a series of short video clips demonstrating the properties, and use, of a range of smart materials, such as: silicon polymer sheet, cold forming plastic (CFP), hydrochromic paint, polymorph, and smart grease.

Clip Art Library - over 350 illustrations from TEP textbooks, downloadable in JPEG format.

112 circuits - from cat flaps to steep gradient sensors, these specialist circuits are explained with the aid of circuit diagrams and component lists.
