RAF 100:  Aiming for awesome - STEM resource

RAF 100: Aiming for awesome - STEM resource

The aim of this resource is to give students the opportunity to investigate the impact of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) on aircraft design. Topics that can be delivered in your lessons include design and make challenges, the development of numeracy and literacy skills, and support for scientific principles such as: forces, sound and radio waves, and experimental skills and investigation. The aim of the activities in this resource are to develop a better understanding of the ways engineers think and act using engineering habits of mind (EHoM). Each resource is linked to the National Curriculum. Further information about the selection of resources that we provide primary and secondary schools is available on the Schools section of our site. Aircraft design - gives students the opportunity to investigate the impact of STEM on aircraft design. Radar - gives students the opportunity to investigate the impact of STEM on radar technology. Speed record - gives students the opportunity to investigate the impact of STEM on the air speed record. Ejection seat - gives students the opportunity to investigate the impact of STEM on ejection seats. Code breaking - gives students the opportunity to investigate the impact of STEM on code breaking and security. Satellite age - gives students the opportunity to investigate the impact of STEM on satellite communications.

STEM / Computing / Maths Project Lesson - Maths in Computing

STEM / Computing / Maths Project Lesson - Maths in Computing

This is an activity lesson I made to promote STEM / Computing / Maths. The activity involves 3 activities linking maths and computing. The first looks at potential roles involving STEM and is designed to raise awareness and aspirations for students. This is a card matchup that I printed out and cut up for students to try to match. The second looks at Boolean logic and logic circuits. The final activity involves the use of Formulae and Pythagoras in calculating damage in a video game. There is a worksheet for this activity too. It is designed to last around an hour. It was originally pitched for year 9 students, but would be suitable for 8 and 10. Comes with a powerpoint with key instructions and questions, along with 2 activity sheets.
