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.

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

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. Deadline for submission of entries: Friday 15th June 2018, 23:00 BST

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!

Graphic Design Wordsearch Sheet Starter Activity Keywords Cover Art Technology

Graphic Design Wordsearch Sheet Starter Activity Keywords Cover Art Technology

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet of keywords on the theme of ‘Graphic Design’. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!
