School Robot Challenge 2018 - design a space robot and moonbase (ages 4-12)

This competition is intended to engage and inspire school children and students through the subject of robotics and space exploration. It aims to provide a compelling introduction to computer aided design, robotics, and space exploration through the design and modelling of a virtual robot at work on another planet. The competition is open to all school children and students in the UK from the ages of 4 to 18. There are two competitions: one for ages 4-12 and the other for ages 13-18. What will I learn? The software accompanying this challenge (links below) will provide participants with a basic introduction to 3D computer aided design and modelling, as well as providing a medium to explore links between creative art and computing. This competition will allow entrants to explore and visualise their own ideas about the future uses of robots in space, and aims to be inspiring, educational and fun. Who is running the competition? The competition is run by the EPSRC UK Robotics and Autonomous Systems Network (UK-RAS), a network of UK universities specialising in Robotics and Autonomous Systems. It is part of a family of competitions organised for the UK Robotics Week, which runs from 21 - 29 June 2018. A panel of judges, consisting of leading scientists and engineers, will select the winning designs in each age category. What are the judges looking for? The judging panel will select their favourite robot and planetary environment. We are looking for creative entries: this could be a robot servicing a spaceport or outpost, or a robot undertaking scientific investigation and exploration on an unusual planet, or any other application of robots in space that you can think of! The judges will choose winning designs that are innovative, interesting, fun, compelling, technically advanced and visually appealing. How do I enter the competition? All you need to do is follow the instructions outlined in the instruction pack! If you get stuck please email us. The competition is split into 2 categories by age group: 4 - 12yrs and 13 - 18yrs.

Careers provision map to meet the new statutory guidance from Jan 2018 (GATSBY)

Careers provision map to meet the new statutory guidance from Jan 2018 (GATSBY)

This is a careers strategy that maps out careers provision from Y7-Y13 to help your school become compliant with the new statutory changes for careers launched in January 2018. The roll out of this plan will satisfy all Gatsby standards which outlines best practice in this area. The document is a comprehensive map of provision that can be adapted to any school setting (including one with a sixth form). The document can be edited so that you can include your school branding. The idea is the map is then printed at size A1. I have also included some recruitment documents and the pupil survey.

The wheat grass is grown cut fed into the top of the machine squeezed through the pipe and comes out at the bottom as a nutritious green shot to take. Best served with pineapple to take the bitterness off.

Design and Technology - Year 1 - Animal Habitats and Enclosures.

Design and Technology - Year 1 - Animal Habitats and Enclosures.

This is a detailed 5 week plan for a series of Year 1 Design and Technology lessons in which they will investigate and evaluate existing models, then design, make and evaluate their own animal enclosures. All that is required is images of animal habitats or zoo enclosures, and junk modelling equipment. This series of 5 or more lessons is great alongside Science lessons around animals and habitats, and also works well in conjunction with a visit to a local zoo, where the children can investigate real animal enclosures as well as photos. It has always led to successful outcomes with the classes I have used it with.

Father's Day Lollipop Tie Rack

Father's Day Lollipop Tie Rack

With Father’s day just around the corner, this lollipop tie rack activity is just the thing to make any Dad happy. You could prepare it on Monday, start it Tuesday afternoon, continue with it on Wednesday, make the card on Thursday and assemble it on Friday ready to take it home for Sunday. Essentially, this is a Father’s Day craft activity where the children can make a very simple tie rack using only 9 lollipop sticks to give to Dad on Father’s Day. It is also a fantastic opportunity for the children to develop their fine motor skills by following a template, being accurate and being patient while the glue dries during the various stages. It will cover you Design and Technology quota for the week! Included in the download is a sticking template which gives assembly instructions, a packaging template that can double up as a card where the children can decorate and add a simple message and a few photographs showing what the tie rack and packaging looks like when complete. Use PVA (wood glue) for strong joins. Stage 1 and the 3 parts of the hook can be made to begin with and left overnight to set, so a good activity to do at the end of the school day. Continue with the next stages during the following morning and the hanger should be ready to go home by the end of the school day or better still the next day to fully allow the glue to set. If weights can be placed onto the rack when it is drying it will help the joints to be even stronger but this is not essential - the tie rack is surprisingly strong and will hold 8 ties when full. Each child will need 9 lollipop sticks, any colour or a combination of colours or use plain sticks which the children can decorate. Two of the lollipop sticks will need to be cut in half to make the hook. I used strong scissors to make a dent at the edges and then snapped them carefully putting my thumbs and index finger as close to the middle as possible. Alternatively, if you have access to junior hacksaws, either you or the children could cut them in half. You could bundle them together and either put some tape or an elastic band around them to make cutting quicker. The ends could be sanded using sandpaper or even a nail file! The assembling template needs to be photocopied and could be laminated to use year after year. You could also write the child’s name on the laminate with a board marker so it is easier to locate the next day. The packaging template just needs to be photocopied too. You can decide if your TA cut them out or you allow the children to - once cut, fold in half and then decorate. Cut out the circle when it is folded in half and then staple into place around the hanger. This craft activity should be lots of fun. The children will love it and the Dads will love it even more.

Bug Hotel Power point and Letter Home

Bug Hotel Power point and Letter Home

Such a fun lesson! As art of teaching microhabitats my class and I created one large bug hotel in our garden area, it could also be done in any forest area nearby, but the closer the better as you can visit and investigate the bugs and which environment they’re most drawn too. Included is a brief powerpoint encouraging the children with ideas of what it may look like and natural environments for different types of insects. I would send the parental letter out a week or two before so they can help out with the items needed. Enjoy!

Technology : Consumer Profile Cards (activity)

Technology : Consumer Profile Cards (activity)

Being a Designer means stepping out of your comfort zone and forgetting about your own preferences & needs. However, I have noticed that this is sometimes lost in classroom practice. Students are given a design brief or problem to solve, yet the final outcome is bias and based upon what THEY like and want. Students design something for themselves that they can take home and use - This resource prevents this from happening! 12 different consumer cards that are purposely written in a paragraphs, so that students can dissect the information, like a reading comprehension, pulling out the important facts that they need to know. This will show a detailed understanding. The cards include a range of people that have a variety of likes, needs and wants. This encourages students to choose a suitable consumer that is relevant to the problem that they have been asked to solve. (For example, if the problem is to design a product to help the elderly, then the Baby consumer profile card would not be suitable - Students should be expected to work this out after class discussion). Print on A4 or A3 paper and laminate!

Literacy : Awesome Adjectives (Display)

**Literacy is a key ingredient to teaching that you expect to find in any classroom. The ‘Awesome Adjectives’ display is a bright and colourful resource that can be used in any subject area to support students with high level pieces of writing. ** This giant ‘describing words’ wall is great for students to refer to whenever they have to complete written analysis tasks. After a class discussion about the meanings of some of the describing words, students can start using them regularly in their writing - leading to the use of high level vocabulary. Print each page on A3 paper to create your display!
